China will increase funding to young scientists to transform the world's manufacturing workshop into an innovation-driven economy. The government will also streamline the approval procedure of such sponsorship, Premier Li Keqiang said after dozens of top-ranking scientists complained about the difficulties of securing research funds when they were young.
Prof. Qing-Zhu Yin and Dr. Yigang Zhang (at the University of California, Davis and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, respectively) discussed their research with Phys.org. "Our major challenge in using two-phase first-principles molecular dynamics to derive the metal–silicate partition coefficient of carbon from liquid iron and silicate melt,"...
The first report on the chemical substitution, or doping, using silver atoms, for a new class of superconductor that was only discovered this year, is about to be published in EPJ B. Chinese scientists from Institute of Solid State Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hefei, discovered that the superconductivity is intrinsic rather than created by impurities in this material with...
Chinese scientists revealed Wednesday that they have found evidence supporting the hypothesis that gravity travels at the speed of light based on data gleaned from observing Earth tides. Scientists have been trying to measure the speed of gravity for years through experiments and observations, but few have found valid methods.
On December 20, 2012, Science Magazine announced the top ten Breakthroughs of the Year 2012 to the public. The discovery of a new kind of neutrino transformation, the scientific achievement of the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment was selected as one of the nine runners-up of this year’s breakthrough, and the winner went to the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
An IECAS-developed ice radar system developed by Institute of Electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IECAS) started its journey with the inland ice sheet division of China’s 29th Antarctic expedition team from Antarctic Zhongshan Station to Kunlun Station for an inland ice sheet expedition.
