Advancements in high-performance flexible thermoelectric devices could lay pathway for wearable temperature-induced generator


Over the last few years, techniques that convert waste energy into a storable form, particularly electricity, have become a promising and sometimes mandatory strategy for industrial and domestic utilities with the release of China’s carbon emission goals.

SUSTech’s Xin-Yuan LIU receives Xplorer Prize


On July 17, the winners of the 5th Xplorer Prize were announced.

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.
