Professor Ying’s Nobel Complex

Ten of Ying’s inventions solved world-class scientific problems:

(1) Platform-style DASP-VI (virtual instrument) base. It enabled the production of instruments through software and combined software and hardware to replace traditional instruments. The new method, which represented a major breakthrough, enormously influenced instrument manufacturing and testing technology. It gave China a cutting edge in VI research and development.

(2) Varied-time-base (VTB) transfer function (admittance), which has reached the world advanced level and obtained a patent in China. The technology has been applied in dozens of key national projects, including the 750-ton mobile launch platform of Shenzhou spacecraft, CZ-3 strap-on booster, and the modal analysis of the arm support system of the exercises for overweight taikonauts.

(3) High-precision technology to measure frequency, amplitude, phases and dampness. The YSL high-precision “varied-frequency-base” method, invented by the Orient Institute, provides a million times greater precision in frequency and amplitude than conventional measurements abroad.

(4) The ultralow-frequency signaling for fast measurement technology, a global leader in the realm.

(5) His analysis method of three cepstrums – CEE cepstrum, CEF cepstrum and CFE cepstrum, which also leads the world in this field.

(6) FFT/DFT method, which has become one of the most used methods in spectrum zoom. It is the most advanced technology in the world.

(7) “One-in-three-out” vibration AVD parameter represents a real-time testing and analysis method. It developed the whole-period differential and integral calculus method, realizing real-time continuous measurement of the “one-in-three-out” vibration AVD parameter.

(8) Automatic modal analysis method, which allows ordinary technicians to obtain expert-level modal analysis results simply.

(9) Dual-24-bit high-precision data acquisition device with 160dB ultra-range and varied-amplitude-base technology.

(10) Transfer function testing, real-time control and inversion. This key technology provided a new method to improve the precision and amplitude of instrument measurement. The invention solved one world-class problem by expanding instruments’ testing scope and frequency and improving precision. The technology is competitive internationally.

Thus far, the product, widely used in many sectors such as national defense and aerospace, has been sold to over 2,000 clients producing RMB 200 million in revenue. It has considerably boosted technical reform and the growth of the emerging industry.

Since 1973 when he first engaged in the VI, Ying’s name has been synonymous with state-of-the-art technology. He compiled and published China’s first monograph in this field, Vibration Testing and Analysis in 1979, published CZ Seismometers and Seismic Technology in 1982, and Waveform and Spectrum Analysis and Random Data Process in 1983. In 1985 he raised the idea of portable laboratory, and made it a reality.

Facing complicated international market competition, Ying believes that the industrialization of China’s virtual instruments is promising despite many obstacles. World recognition is his aim, which continues to drive him. With his firm resolve, Ying and his virtual instruments are looking at a bright future.

Dedicated to the Motherland

“Only obtaining constant breakthroughs brings happiness to my heart,” Ying told journalists when describing the current situation and future of the VI. His entire career is characterized by enthusiasm and dedication.

On December 8, 2012, Chinese novelist Mo Yan, the first Chinese to win a Nobel Prize for literature, delivered his acceptance speech at the Swedish Academy. For Ying and his unremitting efforts in science, the Nobel Prize for physics is still a dream – a dream which inspired his lifelong dedication to science.

In 2001 Ying received China’s Excellent Worker in Science and Technology Award. In 2009, he was voted the Chinese Scientific Person of the Year. In 2010 he was awarded second prize for Beijing Science and Technology.

Ying has devoted his life to climbing the mountains of science. Now in his 70s, he continues to chase his dream. The world needs more scientists like Ying – working hard for the advancement of a nation and happiness of the people.
