Annealing Behavior of Superlattice Nanowire Structure Helps to Expand Kirkendall Effect[Apr 24, 2017]
A Chinese research team led by Prof. FEI Guangtao of Institute of Solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, reported the high temperature oxidation behavior of superlattice nanowire structure, and revealed that the elements diffusion quantity plays an important role in the morphology evolution based on Kirkendall effect. Their work was detailed in Scientific Reports.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has set aside RMB 10 million (~US$1.4 million) to develop a brain-inspired processor chip specialized for deep learning. Called Cambricon, the chip is expected to be the world's first processor that simulates human nerve cells and synapses to conduct deep learning, according to a statement issued by CAS.
Battery Prototype Powered by Atmospheric Nitrogen[Apr 24, 2017]
As the most abundant gas in Earth's atmosphere, nitrogen has been an attractive option as a source of renewable energy. But nitrogen gas doesn't break apart under normal conditions, presenting a challenge to scientists who want to transfer the chemical energy of its triple bond into electricity. Researchers present one approach to capturing atmospheric nitrogen that can be used in a battery.
Asian Wild Rice is Not So Wild[Apr 18, 2017]
The researchers from CHU Chengcai's group at Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with scientists from University of Copenhagen, Denmark and University of Berkeley, USA found that Asian wild rice is a hybrid swarm with extensive gene flow and feralization from domesticated rice.
By consulting a large amount of literature, Prof. YU Diqiu and his team from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences summarized current knowledge concerning the roles of JA in leaf senescence (i.e. a developmental program that is regulated by intrinsic and environmental factors) and tolerance to cold stress.
Researchers Prepare Multiscale Structural and Electronic Control of 2D Molybdenum Sulfide Atomic Crystal[Apr 14, 2017]
Researchers from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully achieved the multiscale structural and electronic control of 2D molybdenum sulfide atomic crystal. The optimized catalyst shows a superior catalytic activity and durability for electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction in acidic medium.
