Quantum repeaters that can store multiplexed signals; provide heralded signals of entanglement; and operate at telecommunications wavelengths have been developed by two independent research teams. Their work could prove to be an important step towards the creation of a scalable quantum internet.
Researchers have fabricated a magnetically driven rotary microfilter that can be used to filter particles inside a microfluidic device. They made the tiny turning filter by creating a magnetic material that could be used with a very precise 3D printing technique known as two-photon polymerization.
Today, Chinese researchers at Shapotou Desert Research and Experiment Station (SDRES) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) are dedicated to developing new techniques to combat desertification in China, which in the past 20 years has contributed to the world's largest greening areas.
It was in August 1958 that Chinese scientists started to float the idea of sending Chinese astronauts to space. At that time, the Chinese Academy of Sciences had formed a panel of distinguished scientists to discuss the research and development of satellites.
Anhui provincial government presented Alain Jacques Becoulet from Hefei Institute of Physical Science (HFIPS) with Mount. Yellow Award for his outstanding contribution in the nuclear fusion energy field between China and France. Becoulet, former president of The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, has witnessed the deepening friendship in fusion energy field between French and China over the years.
Dr. Dambaru Ballab Kattel is an associate professor at the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research (ITPCAS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. His work focuses on mountain climate system as well as climate change adaptation for local communities in the Third Pole region. Just recently, Dr. Dambaru Ballab Kattel was invited to participate in the symposium held by Premier Li Keqiang for representatives of foreign experts working in China, before the Spring Festival, or the Chinese New Year.
Over the last five years, I witnessed the growth of China particularly in science and technology. Fully equipped labs and large research funds provided an opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research. I also got the chance to attend international conferences in the field. At my working unit, everyone was welcoming. I was the first CAS-PIFI candidate who joined this institute. Later, many other Asian and European people joined; some completed their work and some are still working.
