A research group led by Prof. DU Xuemin from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology has developed a "smart" contact lens that can show real-time changes in moisture and pressure by altering colors.
According to a study by researchers from the Institute of Metal Research and their collaborators, two different formation mechanisms of five-fold twinning via repeated oriented attachment of ~3 nm gold, platinum, and palladium nanoparticles were clarified by in situ high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and molecular dynamics simulations.
The research team led by Dr. ZHOU Haokui and supervised by Prof. ZHAO Guoping at the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology developed tmap as an integrative framework for both pattern discovery and hypothesis generation for population-scale microbiome studies.
Scientists from the Aerospace Information Research Institute have found that the effect of air turbulence on laser beam was caused by introducing random transverse wave vectors. Based on this idea, they proposed a method to construct a special laser field that can eliminate transverse wave vectors during propagation to reduce the effect of air turbulence.
Prof. WANG Qiuliang's group from the Institute of Electrical Engineering developed an all-superconducting magnet with a central magnetic field of up to 32.35 Tesla (T), which is a new record of the highest magnetic field generated by all-superconducting magnets.
Prof. LI Yi's team from Institute of Metal Research, collaborating with researchers from UC Berkeley, evaluated the fracture properties and crack propagation process in gradient structured (GS) nickel, involving grain size gradients from ~30 nm to 4 μm. This study not only develops a mechanistic understanding of the fracture behavior of GS materials, but also provides practical guidelines for the use of such materials in safety–critical applications.
