A remote sensing study shows that the water environment of the Jiuzhaigou scenic spot in southwest China's Sichuan Province has started to rehabilitate after being hit by an earthquake, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
Chinese researchers have developed an antimicrobial coating with effective protection lasting up to six months. The new coating was developed based on microcapsule technology. A microcapsule, a tiny capsule, contains materials such as drugs and flavors that are released when the capsule is broken, melted or dissolved.
The 500-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, or FAST, China's mega science project and the world's largest single-dish radio observatory, has detected hundreds of pulsar candidates, of which 132 have been certified, People's Daily reported on August 5.
Chinese scientists said on Thursday that they have completed a comprehensive scientific expedition near Zhongsha Islands in the South China Sea. During the expedition project, which came to an end in late July, three research vessels were organized for missions including samplings for topographic, hydrodynamic, meteorological, chemical, ecological, and biological research in different water areas near the islands, according to the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Dr. Bharat Kumar Yerra is from the southern part of India, an astronomer solving stellar puzzles from starlight through telescopes. He is now working at NAOC and is very productive in his research work. He has been in China for six years altogether, with two years as PIFI fellow at NAOC and now a LAMOST fellow at NAOC itself. He tells about his life and work at NAOC and Beijing.
Doing my postdoctoral fellowship at CAS has made me see the greatness in the organization and how wonderful it is to work with its professional staff members. The present collaboration is very rewarding and I will continuously seek for future opportunities to work with CAS. When the situation permits, I will also be willing to invite CAS members to my university for additional collaborations. With my research, we have already created a niche in lignocellulose nanofibers. Therefore, continuous functionalization and applications are areas for future collaborations.
Being awarded as a CAS-PIFI was a great honor and I was very excited for having the chance and opportunity to work in China in an excellent, high-qualified scientific atmosphere. This award provided a great opportunity for me to extend my scientific work in a broader topic and exchange my experience and expertise with colleagues of the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
