About 600kg of third-generation hybrid rice seeds was sorted at a speed of 20kg/h last week, with the help of a prototype developed by Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The prototype, a fluorescence identification and sorting device, can boost the speed and accuracy of seed sorting, a help for agricultural scientists at China National Hybrid Rice R&D Centre (CNHRRDC), where third-generation hybrid rice is being developed.View More
Recently, a research team from the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics experimentally demonstrated a figure-of-9 fiber laser which can generate period-multiplied pulses with long-term stability. According to the authors, the presented laser design could be a stable and reliable ultrafast optical platform to study bifurcation and chaos.
Nd-doped phosphate glasses have been used in high energy / high power laser applications due to their low nonlinear refractive index and high stimulated emission cross section. Recently, a research team from Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics have made progress in accurate simulation and prediction of the new developing orientation of laser glasses.
Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics and their collaborators found that there would be a future intensification of the western North Pacific Subtropical High.
Climatologists have found that if an ongoing Philippine volcanic eruption becomes more violent, the gases released are likely to produce an El Nino event during the 2020-21 winter, a more intense polar vortex and warming across Eurasia.
Chinese researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have designed an improved remote sensing method for more efficient landslide monitoring. They demonstrated that the SAR remote sensing plays an important role in global landslide monitoring, especially when ground live data are insufficient.
Researchers from China and the United States released the result of a joint study showing China's oldest forest dates back to 371 million years ago. The ancient forest was in Tacheng Prefecture, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, said Professor Xu Honghe of Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the leader of the research.
Designers have begun to develop an upgraded version of the Long March 11 carrier rocket called the Long March 11A, which they said will be wider and taller than the current model and have greater thrust. A Long March 11 was launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province for the first time on Saturday, sending two technology demonstration satellites into orbit.
