Researchers report smart windows based on assembly of one-dimensional nanomaterials for dynamic regulation of solar radiation


In buildings, the overreliance on air conditioning to achieve comfortable indoor temperatures results in significant power consumption and corresponding greenhouse gas emissions.

SUSTech hosts 16th Sino-US Chemistry Professors Conference and Synthetic Chemistry Future Forum


From June 23 to 25, the 16th Sino-US Chemistry Professors Conference and Synthetic Chemistry Future Forum was held at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech).

Researchers explain why energy can travel much faster in microcavities


In a microcavity, consisting of two parallel mirrors separated at a small distance, light couples very strongly to matter. This gives rise to the formation of so-called polaritons, quasiparticles consisting of light and matter (such as molecules) with intriguing optical properties.

Researchers reveal synthesis and growth mechanism of high entropy alloy nanoparticles


High entropy alloy nanoparticles (HEA-NPs) show great potential as functional materials. However, thus far, the realized HEAs have been restricted to palettes of similar elements, which greatly hinders the material design, property optimization, and mechanistic exploration for different applications.

Researchers make progress in study of electronic structure of obstructed atomic insulators


The century-long development of surface sciences has witnessed the discoveries of a variety of quantum states. In a recently published article, researchers observe spectroscopic signature of the novel “obstructed surface states” on the (0001) plane of SrIn2P2, a candidate “obstructed atomic insulator (OAI)”.

Researchers reveal structure and composition of global mantle transition zone


The mantle’s compositional structure reflects the thermochemical evolution of Earth. Yet, it has long been debated whether any radial compositional layering is maintained within the mantle, and if and how this would affect the scale of mantle convection.
