Vision and Mission


  1. To become a world class scientific research base in the Asia-Pacific region for ultra-precision machining and nano-surface metrology technologies.
  2. To advance the ultra-precision machining and nano-surface metrology technologies.
  3. To develop and nurture the talents of multi-skilled young scientists and researchers from Hong Kong and Mainland China.
  4. To generate economic value in the various industries through promotion, dissemination and technology transfer for the use of ultra-precision machining technologies in new product design and development.



  1. To undertake research into ultra-precision machining technologies and nano-surface metrology so as to bridge the gap in technology between Mainland China and overseas countries such as the USA, UK, Japan, etc.
  2. To develop the capability and research expertise in Hong Kong and Mainland China in ultra-precision machining, advanced optics manufacturing and surface measurement used in various industries such as photonics, telecommunication, environmental, automotive, optometry and biomedical.
  3. To uphold the manufacturing technologies for critical precision and optical components and applications in various industries. As a result, Hong Kong and Mainland China will be capable of designing and manufacturing these components without the need to rely on the import of technology from overseas.
  4. To conduct research and establish ultra-precision freeform measurement technologies and standards which will help to enhance the surface quality of advanced optics and critical precision components.
  5. To enhance the capability of Hong Kong and Mainland China in the design, fabrication and measurement of precision optical components.
