Tsinghua University group develops tattoo-type electronic skin

The group of Tianling REN at the school of information science and technology of Tsinghua University has developed a graphen-based electronic tattoo which can be used for detecting multiple functions such as breathing, heart rate, sleep analysis and vocalization. The team applied graphene oxide by wet stripping and reduced it to graphene by laser irradiation, […]

Chinese Arctic Scientific Observation Team arrives at the Arctic Circle

In pursuit of China’s plan to promote the establishment of a polar commercial route, the polar vessel “Snow Dragon” arrived on July 30 at the Arctic Circle and raised China’s flag. The crew carried out observation activities such as marine weather, marine hydrological messages, marine environmental radionuclides, etc., and launched the underwater glider “sea wing” […]

China and Japan develop machine translation system Chinese – Japanese with 97 % accuracy

The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), Kyoto University and the China Science and Technology Information Research Institute have succeeded in the joint development of a Chinese-Japanese scientific technology paper translation system. The translatable proportion reached 97%. Both sides first constructed a high quality medium-to-medium language material bank of more than 5 million phrases based […]

CAS Institute of Mechanics predicts strong electrical conductivity in 3D graphene foams

LIU Feng and WANG Chao of the CAS Institute of Mechanics propose a theoretical framework to make use of electrical conductivity of 3D graphene foams. They combined a model of conductance between graphene sheets with a second model of the network structure of 3D graphene foams as studied by molecular dynamics simulation, and extracted geometric […]

CAS SINANO group develops multiresponsive graphene aerogel fibers

A group around Xuetong ZHANG at CAS Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO)  has developed a novel type of smart fibre by combination of graphene aerogel fibre, phase change material (PCM) and fluorocarbon (FC) resin coating. The fibre is flexible and self-cleaning, it responds to multi-stimuli (photo/electric/heat), and is capable of thermal energy conversion and storage. […]

CAS DICP team develops flexible planar Li ion microcapacitors

Interdigital micro-supercapacitors are a promising miniaturized energy source. A research team led by WU Zhongshuai and BAO Xinhe from the CAS Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has reported a new-type of all-solid-state flexible planar lithium ion micro-capacitors. They were fabricated via layer-by-layer mask-assisted deposition of graphene (EG) and electrode […]

China will have 700 National Key Labs by 2020

According to a post of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), jointly issued with the Ministry of Finance, China will rapidly expand the present number of 220 national key laboratories. Major efforts will be made in research fields such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, geoscience, biology and medical science, and in cutting-edge fields such as […]

Meituan Co. starts test delivery of food by unmanned vehicles in Beijing

The leading food delivery company has started an unmanned delivery service in Beijing by a vehicle called小袋v2. Speed of the vehicle is 20 km/h, and the box is equipped with a highly sensitive temperature control system. Furthermore, even under complicated road conditions, obstacles can be automatically avoided and routes can be automatically planned. Japan JST […]
