It's located on the hill of the Lingfeng (灵峰), and in the Yuquan Campus. It has a construsction area of 1,000 m2.

It mainly focuses on the fields of quantum field theory, string theory, high-energy physics, etc. Current researchers including Mr. Xiaowei TANG (唐孝威, academician of CAS) also do the interdisciplinary studies of biophysics. It's also coupled closely with the Department of Physics of Zhejiang University.
