Briefings on the Visit of the Atomic Energy Group of the Indonesian Economic Delegation

1. Yesterday (22 [September]) the Atomic Energy Group visited the Allied Physics Department, Physics Department, Chemistry Department and the Oriental Language Department at Peking University. The Vice President of the University, Huang Yiran, kindly received the guests himself. In his brief introduction on the history of Peking University, Vice President Huang highlighted the revolutionary tradition and the path of self-reliance in the development of Peking University. In the morning the guests visited the laboratories of nuclear physics, electronics and radiation chemistry. In the afternoon they visited the laboratories for research on general physics, intermediate physics, solid-state physics, semiconductor, colloid chemistry, organic extraction and heavy water analysis. They also visited the library of the oriental language department.

2. The foreign guests had very positive reactions. One group member said: “You have done a great job in both teaching and research. In particular, you built your own equipment and nurtured young people.” After visiting the heavy water analysis laboratory, the foreign guests wanted to obtain information with regard to the methods used in the process. Peking University agreed to offer. The head of the group also tested the possibility of sending Indonesian exchange students to Peking University.
