Scientists Experimentally Realize Two-Dimensional Boron (Borophene)[Apr 01, 2016]

FENG Baojie and ZHONG Qing, the Ph.D. students in Prof. WU Kehui and A/P CHEN Lan's group from the Institute of Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, have experimentally realized 2D boron sheets (borophene) on Ag(111) surface for the first time. They employed high temperature crucible heated up to over 2000゜C by electron beam and evaporated boron onto the substrate directly in a homemade molecular-beam epitaxy system. They discovered two types of 2D B structures formed on Ag(111) using scanning tunneling microscopy.

New Hadrosauroid Dinosaur Found from the Late Cretaceous of Shanxi, China[Mar 30, 2016]

In the evolution from non-hadrosaurid hadrosauroids to hadrosaurids, their dentaries acquired several key innovations. A new non-hadrosaurid hadrosauroid dinosaur, reported in the latest issue of of Vertebrata PalAsiatica, provides numerous important anatomical features to depict its taxonomic status and systematic relationship, implying incredible diversities and attempts close to the origin of Hadrosauridae.

Researchers Report Critical Evidence for Theory of Turbulence Quench by Flow Shear in Fusion Plasma[Mar 29, 2016]

Critical evidence for the theory of turbulence quench by the flow shear was found in the latest research on Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) in ASIPP, a progress towards better understanding of the mechanism of turbulence suppression at the low-to-high (L-H) transition.

A Novel Fluorescent Probe: Real-Time Discrimination and Profiling of Spontaneous ROS in Vivo[Mar 31, 2016]

A study team led by Prof. ZHANG Zhongping in Institute of Intelligent Machines (IIM), Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (CAHIPS), made a progress by developing a single fluorescent probe to achieve effective discrimination and profiling of hydroxyl radicals (·OH) and hypochlorous acid (HClO) in living organisms. The paper entitled Real-Time Discrimination and Versatile Profiling of Spontaneous Reactive Oxygen Species in Living Organisms with a Single Fluorescent Probe was published in the Journal American Chemical Society.
