Significant Progress in Soft Matters

Recently, Hao Jingcheng (Professor of Shandong University), part time researcher of Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS achieved significant research progress on soft matters, especially a gel phase originated by adding Na+ jointly with the Research Team headed by Liu Weimin, research fellow of Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics. Research result obtained at the current stage was published on Soft Matter, 2008, 4, 1639; Nanotechnology, 2008, 19, 225607 and J. Phys. Chem. B, 2008, 112, 1414. The result published on Soft Matter was highly commented by reviewer and editor who recommended it to be published as Inside Cover and that published on Nanotechnology ranked top five most downloaded papers during the month of its publication.

Progress in Research of Highly Ordered Multiscale Porous Materials

Recently, a Research Team headed by Meng Qingbo, Beijing National Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics, the Institute of Physics, CAS developed a Rapidly Infrared-Assisted Cooperatively Self-Assembled Highly Ordered Multiscale Porous Materials jointly with Wang Yuren, research fellow of the Institute of Mechanics, CAS and Zhang Daozhong, research fellow of the Institute of Physics, CAS. Two national inventory patents have been applied for the result that has 100% home-grown intellectual property rights. Relevant result was published in J. Am. Chem. Soc. (130, 9785-9789, 2008).

New Result Achieved in Supernovae

In July 2008, Zhang Pengjie, research fellow of the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory published a paper named ¡°Type Ia supernovae as speed sensors at intermediate redshifts¡± coauthored with Chen Xuelei, research fellow of the National Astronomical Observatories on Physical Review. The paper shows that fluctuations in type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) fluxes induced by LSPV offer a promising approach to measure LSPV at intermediate redshifts, thus exploring the approach to probe of dark matter, dark energy and gravity. The British scientific journal Physical World reported the work as headline news.
