Researchers at 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) recently discovered a low-cost, direct method to turn commonly used 3D printable polymers into lightweight, ultra-tough, biocompatible hybrid carbon microlattices, which can be in any shape or size, and are 100 times stronger than the original polymers.
Professor Yang Yong, from 澳门金沙投注中心
A research team co-led by materials scientists from 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) has recently discovered a new mechanism to increase the strength and ductility of a high-entropy alloy, two properties which normally vary inversely with each other. The findings provide important insights for the future design of strong yet ductile high-entropy alloys and high-entropy ceramics.
Dr Chen Ting-Hsuan, cityu
A research team led by 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) recently invented an accurate rapid-testing device that can quantify and display the antibody level as a length of a visual bar, like a mercury thermometer, in as few as 20 minutes, enabling convenient mass screening or individual monitoring of immune protection against COVID-19.
C. elegans
A team co-led by a 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) neuroscientist has identified a key mechanism of a biological clock that ensures roundworms stay regular by defecating at steady intervals.
Professor Chen Sheng
A research project led by a scholar at 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU), titled "Multi-disciplinary approaches to tackling the global public health threat of hypervirulent and multidrug-resistant (MDR) Klebsiella pneumoniae" received research funding in the 12th round of the Theme-based Research Scheme (TRS) under the Research Grants Council (RGC) of the University Grants Committee (UGC) for a five-year project.
vuv light
A research team co-led by 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) have successfully developed a novel Vacuum Ultra-Violet (VUV) meta-lens which can generate and focus the VUV light, a disruptive technology for the UV optics market.
piezoelectricity
Piezoelectric materials are applicable in the biomedical field, and if they can be biocompatible and degradable, it will be a big step towards real applications. Recently, a research team at 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) developed a simple exfoliation method to prepare ultrathin films of small intestine tissues from sheep.
rna dna twist change
The double-helix structure of DNA deforms by environmental stimuli, which will then affect gene expression, and eventually trigger a sequence of cellular processes. Recent researches led by a physicist from 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) observed substantial DNA deformations by ions and temperature changes.
ultra-violet lasers
A collaborative research team co-led by researchers from 澳门金沙投注中心 (CityU) developed a new approach to generate deep-ultraviolet lasing through a “domino upconversion” process of nanoparticles using near-infrared light, which is commonly used in telecommunication devices.
