2021-12-03

Professor Zhiping Zheng’s group from the Department of Chemistry at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) has recently made a series of developments in the field of functionalization of rare earth nanomaterials. Their results have been published in high-level journals, such as CCS Chemistry, Nano Research, and Small.

Breakthrough in construction of boron-stereogenic compounds

2021-11-30

Associate Professor Chuan He’s team from the Department of Chemistry at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) has published a breakthrough paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, one of the most impactful and prestigious journals in chemistry. Their research was entitled “Catalytic Enantioselective Construction of Chiroptical Boron-Stereogenic Compounds.” They looked at methods to access enantioenriched boron-stereogenic compounds through an asymmetric copper-catalyzed azide−alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) reaction.

Advances in understanding of toroidal plasma turbulent transport

2021-11-25

A key problem encountered in achieving the energy of controlled nuclear fusion is how to confine the high-temperature, high-density plasma within a limited range for a long enough time and make enough nuclear fusion reactions per unit of time. This is extremely important in fusion plasma physics research.

Chinese scientists prospect double-slit interference behavior in molecular collision

2021-11-22

Chair Professor Xueming Yang in the Department of Chemistry at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) and Professor Xingan Wang at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) were invited to write a perceptive on stereodynamics and quantum interference phenomena in molecular collisions.

Recent advances in understanding magnetospheric source of aurora

2021-11-17

Associate Professor Jian Yang’s group from the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) and Professor Jun Cui’s group from the School of Atmospheric Sciences at Sun Yat-sen University have recently made a series of significant progress on the auroral research. Their resulting three papers have been published in Geophysical Research Letters, a leading Natural Index journal in the field of Earth Sciences.

New understanding of how to delay energy cost limit

2021-11-15

A group of researchers has derived a universal lower bound for the finite-time work penalty in bit reset, an elementary operation in irreversible computation. The bound applies to all physical models as long as the detailed balance is respected and, thus, encompasses previous results focused on specific models.
