The Physics Department of Fudan University was founded in 1952, seeded from the physics group in the former Department of Mathematics and Physics at Fudan. Under the nation-wide reorganizational effort within universities located close by, the physics departments of 8 universities in East China, including Fudan University, Jiaotong University, Tongji University, Zhejiang University, Hujiang University and Datong University, were partly merged into one department, the Physics Department of Fudan University.
In the past six decades, the Department has experienced a colorful and fruitful but hard and complicated course. It kept proliferation and fission, derived Physics Department II, Electronic Engineering Department, the Light and Illumination Department, the Material Science Department, and the Computer Science Department, making significant contributions to the growth and completeness of Fudan University. Meanwhile, the Department itself has been developing into one of the key centers for physics research and education in China.
