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.

Researchers experimentally reveal bifractal circulation in turbulence


A major issue in the study of turbulence is to find its putatively universal small-scale properties. Most existing theories of turbulence based on phenomenology and mathematical analysis largely focus on the velocity structure functions, as their scaling laws can characterize the dynamics of energy cascade.

SUSTech’s Liu Leo LIU wins two awards from Chinese Chemical Society


Liu Leo LIU, Associate Professor of the Department of Chemistry at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), recently won the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS) Young Chemist Award (2022) and the CCS Jingqing Award for Rising Star (2022).

SUSTech wins multiple awards at 8th Innovation Cup National Geophysical Knowledge Competition


From May 18 to 21, 2023, the 8th Innovation Cup National Geophysical Knowledge Competition for College Students took place at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei, China.

Non-Hermitian swallowtail catastrophe reveals transitions among diverse topological singularities


In recent years, exceptional degeneracies have attracted a great deal of interest. The most studied (and simplest) ones are isolated exceptional points.
