Researchers Find Ways to Manipulate Superconductivity and Charge-density-wave in Transition Metal Dichalcogenides[Jun 21, 2017]

Recently, through first-principles calculations and experiments, the research group led by Prof. SUN Yuping and Prof. LU Wenjian in the Functional Materials Laboratory at Institute of Solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science made s series of achievements in manipulation of superconductivity and charge-density-wave (CDW) order in transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) by high pressure and charge-carries doping.

Pre-synaptic Cadherin/Catenin Complexes Drive Post-Synaptic Dendritic Spine Stabilization in vivo[Jun 22, 2017]

A recent study conducted by Dr. YU Xiang's lab at the Institute of Neuroscience of Chinese Academy of Sciences uncovered an asymmetric role for the symmetric cadherin/catenin cell adhesion complexes in functional synapse formation in the neocortex. Pre-synaptic β-catenin is predominant during the formation and mediates dendritic spine stabilization through N-cadherin-dependent anterograde trans-synaptic signaling. The effect of the cadherin/catenin requires p140Cap, a novel β-catenin interacting partner.

AIOFM's Spectral Radiation Colorimetric Calibration System Contributes to China's First Set of Commercial Laboratory[Jun 22, 2017]

Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (AIOFM), Hefei Institute of Physical Science completes the detailed design of "Visible light-shortwave infrared spectrum radiation colorimetric calibration system", which is China's first set of commercial laboratory spectral radiation colorimetric calibration system and is designed by CHEN Hongyao's team. By now, the detailed design of the calibration system has been approved.

Hot Summer Frequents Europe-West Asia and Northeast Asia after mid-1990s[Jun 22, 2017]

A recent research by Institute of Atmospheric Physics identified a nonuniform warming pattern in summer after the mid-1990s over the Eurasian continent, with a predominant amplified warming over Europe-West Asia and Northeast Asia but much weaker warming over Central Asia.

DICP Researchers Identify Formation of Surface Li-Fe Ternary Hydride on Catalytic Ammonia Synthesis[Jun 21, 2017]

The catalytic activation and the transformation of dinitrogen to ammonia under mild condition is one of the greatest challenges in chemistry. And it has been actively investigated for a century. The research groups led by Prof. JIANG Ling and Prof. CHEN Ping from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics collaboratively process an important progress on mechanism understanding of catallytic ammonia synthesis.

China to See More Dry Days, with Larger Extents[Jun 21, 2017]

China will see more intense drought events in the future 30 years, with high frequency, long duration, and in larger areas, a recent study by Chinese scientists found. The study, carried out by a team of scientists from the Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography (XIEG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, found that more intense dryness conditions are projected for China for the period 2016–2050.
