A group of researchers from CSNS recently finished a beam chopping test of the Fermi neutron chopper prototype. The chopper worked accurately producing several expected monochromatic energy neutron beams, marking its successful development as China's first Fermi neutron chopper prototype. The Fermi neutron chopper is used to select monochromatic energy neutron beams at 10~1500 meV of neutron energy and is a decisive factor in the instrument’s energy resolution and count rate, thus making it a key piece of equipment for time-of-flight inelastic neutron scattering instruments.
China's sci-tech progressed faster in the last 10 years than any other decade in history, Vice Minister of Science and Technology Li Meng said at a press conference in Beijing on Thursday. "China's change in the sci-tech field was historical and comprehensive," he told reporters. "We have become a nation of innovations and part of the global innovation system."
The BRICS Forum on Big Data for Sustainable Development was held both in Beijing and online on April 26, 2022. The two-day event was co-hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Academy of Science of South Africa , Brazilian Academy of Sciences, Russian Academy of Sciences, and Indian National Science Academy. The forum provided an academic platform for over 400 BRICS scientists, engineers, policy-makes, stakeholders, and representatives from relevant international organizations to explore how to address regional and global challenges to sustainable development and lend impetus to the implementation of UN 2030 Agenda through international cooperation in science, technology, and innovation, especially based on big data.
China Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Station (RSGS), a major national S&T infrastructure hosted by the Aerospace Information Research Institute (AIR) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), confirmed on April 21 that it received data from the newly launched atmospheric environmental monitoring satellite.
China Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Station (RSGS), a major national S&T infrastructure hosted by the Aerospace Information Research Institute (AIR) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), confirmed that it received data from the newly launched GF-3 03 satellite on April 11. The satellite, featuring a C-band multi-polarization synthetic aperture radar (SAR), was launched on April 7 as part of China's civil space infrastructure.
Ecosystem-based Adaptation through South-South Cooperation (EbA South, 2013-2020) has been selected by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to present its story, successes and lessons learned as a Good Practice Brief of GEF-funded project. The GEF secretariat has selected it from several nominations by various GEF agencies, taking into consideration approaches used to generate multiple global environmental benefits and co-benefits, and to achieve clear results and/or sustainability.
