Humble Beginning, Bright Future: Institute of Physics (CAS) at 90

The Institute of Physics (IOP) at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is the flagship physics research institute in China. IOP is also designated as the National Research Center for Condensed Matter Physics, one of six centers recently named by the country’s Ministry of Science and Technology. The collection of articles in this supplement represent selected major achievements in condensed matter physics research over IOP’s 90-year history, as well as the innovations in technology and industry that have resulted. IOP’s latest development is also discussed—a group of multiple infrastructures and R&D facilities in Huairou Science City, a planned science center with a 100-km2 area, located in the northeast suburbs of Beijing.
