Single-atom catalysis could change storage of renewable energy


​Electrolyzed water is known as a highly effective method of storing renewable energy, and new methods for single-atom catalysis could see significant changes to the industry as a whole. Associate Professor Meng Gu (Materials Science and Engineering) and Associate Professor Hu Xu (Physics) worked with their colleagues at Oregon State University (Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering) to publish a breakthrough paper on single-atom catalysis.

SUSTech researchers make new progress in studying Dirac semi-metals


The Institute of Quantum Science and Engineering (IQSE) has worked with partners at Peking University and the University of Twente to make significant progress in the quantum control of Dirac semi-metal superconducting hetero-junctions.

An article about "quantum resonances near absolute zero" published in Science by SUSTech chemists


Two recent advances in“quantum resonances near absolute zero," have sought to prove quantum mechanics in atomic and molecular collisions through experimentation, especially at temperatures near absolute zero Kelvin (K). Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) chemists have provided their viewpoint on these ground-breaking achievements.

Researchers gain new insights into the origin of chiral molecular selectivity


Recent research led by Department of Chemistry, Southern University of Science and Technology has possibly solved a long-held question that has thwarted chemists for generations: Where did the first molecule with chiral selectivity come from?

A novel RNA interference mechanism dictates plant response to external stress


The understanding of how RNA interference works in conjunction with the stress response is improved with the research led by Chair Professor Hongwei Guo (Biology). The research is published on Nature (IF = 43.07).

Could Star Wars holograms become a reality?


Science fiction is one step closer to reality following new research from Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) that could ultimately see three-dimensional holograms in every person’s home.
