Sino-Japanese Scientists Jointly Make Major Breakthrough in Super-Conductors

On March 2, the Chinese scientists in Beijing and the Japanese scientists in Tokyo simultaneously announced that after three years effortsŁ¬ for the first time they have successfully developed a photo-electron spectroscopy with ultrahigh resolution, which is higher than 1meV, and still for the first time, they have observed the superconductive electrons. The new type of ultraviolet non-linear optical crystals (KBe2BO3F2) and prism coupling technology used for this work were provided by the Chinese Scientists. This major discovery was published in the Physical Review (Vol.94, 2005).
The successful development of the ultrahigh resolution photo-electron spectroscopy has made it possible for scientists to come up with new theories to promote the development in high temperature super-conductive materials.-5

Prof. Gross, Nobel Prize Laureate, Visits Institute of Theoretical Physics

From Feb. 27 to 28, Prof. David Gross, world famous theoretical physicist, 2004 Nobel Prize Laureate in physics and Director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, USA made two lectures entitled the Future of Physics and the Coming Revolution in Fundamental Physics at the Forum on Science Frontiers in the Institute of Theoretical Physics, CAS. More than 20 members of CAS and more than 600 teachers and students from the Peking University, the Tsinghua University and other universities and from some of the institutes of CAS attended the seminar.
