The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), is a Chinese research institute. It has historical origins in the Academia Sinica during the Republican era and formerly also known by that name, is the national academy for the natural sciences of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Collectively known as the "Two Academies (两院)" along with the Chinese Academy of Engineering, it functions as the national scientific think tank and academic governing body, providing advisory and appraisal services on issues stemming from the national economy, social development, and science and technology progress. It is headquartered in Xicheng District, Beijing, with branch institutes all over mainland China. It has also created hundreds of commercial enterprises, Lenovo being one of the most famous.

Researchers Develop Turing Membrane to Improve Performance of Zinc-based Batteries

“Zinc-based batteries are promising options for energy storage devices owing to their low cost and high energy density. However, they may encounter serious dendrite issues, especially at high areal capacities and current densities. Recently, a research team led by Prof …

Scientists Reveal Novel Double-roaming Mechanism in Chemical Reaction

“Roaming, a novel mechanism in reaction dynamics, describes an unusual pathway that is quite different from the conventional minimum-energy path. It is facilitated by the initial frustrated dissociation to form radical products, and then the meandering of the incipient radicals …

Chiral Lead-free Hybrid Perovskites Developed for Self-powered Circularly Polarized Light Detection

“The metal-halide perovskites feature the distinctive structure flexibility, which enables the employment of chiral organic cations to construct chiral perovskites. Such chiral perovskites are the promising alternative for circular polarized light (CPL) detection owing to their efficient charge transport of …

Fatigue-free Layered Hybrid Perovskite Ferroelectric Developed for Photovoltaic Non-volatile Memories

“Ferroelectric materials with reversible spontaneous polarization have been extensively investigated as active media for non-volatile memories. However, most of the ferroelectric materials known suffer from high internal resistances, large bandgap, and poor carrier transportation, which hindered their further applications. The …

Insights into Lithium Metal Battery Failure Open Doors to Doubling Battery Life

“Lithium metal batteries could double the amount of energy held by lithium-ion batteries, if only their anodes didn’t break down into small pieces when they were used. Now, researchers led by Prof. CUI Guanglei from the Qingdao Institute of …

First Measurement Device Independent Quantum Key Distribution Experiment to Secure Communication

“PAN Jianwei and colleagues PENG Chengzhi and ZHANG Qiang, from University of Science and Technology of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), collaborating with WANG Xiangbin from Tsinghua University and YOU Lixing from Shanghai Institute of Microsystems of …

Bionic Idea Boosts Lithium-ion Extraction

“Lithium is an energy-critical element that is considered to be a geopolitically significant resource. However, the supply of lithium may not be enough to meet continuously increasing demand. As a result, scientists are looking for new ways to extract lithium …
