As the most thermally loaded plasma-facing component in a foreseen DEMO reactor and beyond, the current divertor target designs can’t meet the requirement under the high neutron irradiation dose.
A research team led by Prof. LIANG Changhao from Institute of solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) successfully obtained Mn3O4/PtOxnanocomposites (NCs) which paved the way for the practical clinical applications for Mn3O4 nanosturctures in MR imaging.
Very recently, pressure-induced superconductivity has been unveiled in photovoltaic semiconductor ZnSiP2, according to a study conducted by a team from the High Magnetic Field Laboratory of Hefei Institutes of Physical Science and Zhengzhou University.
Recently, a research team led by Prof. LI Yue from Institute of solid State Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISSP), working in partnership with Prof. Li Cuncheng from University of Jinan, has developed a one-pot synthesis of ultrasmooth, precisely shaped gold nanospheres via surface self-polishing etching and regrowth.
Thanks to the various energy in nature, young sunflowers can track the sun’s movement because of the asymmetric elongation on opposite sides of stems from the solar irradiation; Drosophila melanogaster can sense and fly toward a light source to produce phototactic motion. These plants and insects have evolved the capability of responding to the change of environmental stimuli and producing corresponding mechanical motions.
