Prof. LIU Jing from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry published a cutting edge book "Advanced Liquid Metal Cooling for Chip, Device and System" to interpret the latest top cooling technologies. It is the first ever book to summarize the core principles and practical applications of a brand-new advanced chip cooling category: liquid metal cooling.
Recently, researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) showed that neither ant species richness nor total abundance could explain the variation in predation rate. They used artificial caterpillars (made of odorless and non‐toxic colored plasticine) exposed on plant leaves in a natural rainforest at XTBG in southwest China to study the diel variability of predation rate on caterpillars.
Recently, a research team led by Prof. FENG Yan from Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, reported a high power CW single frequency 780 nm laser by utilizing single-pass frequency doubling of a 1560 nm fiber amplifier in an MgO: PPLN crystal.
The Plant Bioinformatics Group led by Prof. ZHANG Xiujun from Wuhan Botanical Garden tested the influence of the environmental factor temperature on RNA editing process in the whole mRNA from grape organelle. They found that RNA editing was responsive to environmental inputs in the form of temperature alterations.
For the first time ever in China, <EM>Himalayas saprias</EM>, a parasitic flowering plant in Xishuangbanna, southwest China's Yunnan Province, were photographed in bloom by two Chinese researchers. The himalayas sapria is an extremely rare plant that is found in Southeast Asia. In China, they are only found in Xishuangbanna and Metok in Tibet, and the exact locations are strictly confidential.
Researchers have discovered ancient fossils of a new Cretaceous mammal species in northeast China's Liaoning Province, finding a missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle of mammalian hearing evolution. The research was jointly conducted by paleontologists from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology and the American Museum of Natural History. Their findings were published in the latest issue of the journal Science.
China has released its first English-language blue book on e-science, a type of highly digitalized scientific research that uses large-scale computing infrastructure, big data and other cutting-edge information technologies. This guidebook will serve as an authoritative source for foreign scholars to systematically peer into China's e-science development, its latest results, and find new grounds for international collaboration, scientists said on Wednesday.
