On Sept. 14, the American University of Beirut (AUB) and the Institute of Plasma Physics (ASIPP), Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) of Chinese Academy of Sciences signed a cooperation agreement regarding the scientific research on nuclear fusion energy.
On Sept. 7, 3 days ahead of Mid-autumn festival 2022, a special culture event was held on science island.
A research team led by Prof. MENG Guowen from the Institute Solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), cooperating with Prof. WEI Bingqing of the University of Delaware, Newark, USA, successfully developed a structurally integrated, highly-oriented carbon tube (CT) grids as electrodes of electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs), to significantly improve in the frequency response performance and the areal and volumetric capacitances at the corresponding frequency. It is expected to be used as a high-performance small-sized alternating current (AC) line-filtering capacitor in electronic circuits, providing the essential materials and technology for the miniaturization and portability of electronic products.
According to a paper published in Nano Letters recently, a research team led by Prof. WU Zhikun from the Institute of Solid State, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) obtained reduced Pd-based alloy nanoclusters (abbreviated as Au4Pd6 and Au3AgPd6) for the first time.
A terrestrial ecosystem carbon monitoring satellite was launched from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center at 11:08 am by a Long March 4B carrier rocket, and entered the planned orbit successfully.
