The 9.2 ka Event in Asian Summer Monsoon Area: Strongest Millennial Scale Collapse of the Monsoon During the Holocene?[Jun 23, 2017]

A large number of climate reconstructions reveal a climatic pattern far from stable throughout the Holocene, with a series of Decalogue-to-centennial scale abrupt climate events, which are recorded by the δ18O records from Greenland ice cores, the North Atlantic drift ice records, the tropical-subtropical monsoonal records and so on. The most prominent feature of these dramatic climate events is the rapid onset and end within a few decades. The investigating in characteristic and mechanism of these rapid climate events could help us understanding the unstablity of the global climate system and evaluate the risk of abrupt climate changes in the future warming word.

Researchers Develop 3D Super-resolution Imaging at Unprecedented Depth[Jun 23, 2017]

Optical imaging is a powerful tool in the biomedical sciences, allowing direct inspection and biological processes analysis. Such imaging becomes even more powerful when implemented in three dimensions (3D), and can be further augmented if combined with super-resolution techniques that uncover fine details otherwise obscured by diffraction.

Tiny Glow Sticks[Jun 23, 2017]

Well-defined, microscale Ln-MOFs have remained a rarity. Now, things have changed with the new micro-rod Ln-MOFs, which have potential as microscale waveguides. Researchers at Beijing Normal University and Institute of Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences chose to use benzenetricarboxylic acid (BTC) as their organic building block. This compound strongly absorbs UV light and has electronic energy levels well matched with lanthanides.

Expression of bHLH104-GF Improves Plants' Tolerance to Iron Deficiency[Jun 23, 2017]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences attempted to improve the plants' tolerance of Arabidopsis to Fe deficiency under Fe-deficiency conditions. They selected three different Fe-deficiency responsive promoters (ProIRT1, ProMYB72, and ProbHLH100) to drive the expression of a bHLH104-GFP fusion gene. The corresponding transgenic plants were generated.

Responsive Polymers to Develop high-performance Energy Converters[Jun 23, 2017]

A study team led by Prof. FANG Xiaodong at Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (AIOFM), Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, worked with Prof. MA Mingming's study team at School of Chemistry and Materials Science, University of Science and Technology of China(USTC) to fabricate a moisture-driven mini-tractor by incorporating superparamagnetic nanoparticles (SPIONs) into water-responsivepolypyrrole (PPy) films.
