Prof. BAI Haiyang from the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has recently shown the existence of liquid-like atoms in metallic glasses. These atoms inherit the dynamics of high-temperature liquid atoms, revealing the nature of metallic glasses as part-solid and part-liquid.
An international research team led by Dr. ZHANG Huaqiao from the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NIGPAS) has used hundreds of new fossil specimens to clarify the anatomy and evolutionary affinity of Saccorhytus, originally thought to be a deuterostome.

Climate models were not doing a good job of predicting how spring rainfall was changing over China’s northeast, the country’s breadbasket region, potentially threatening food security, even though these same models were working just fine elsewhere. Researchers have now found what was missing from their understanding.

Researchers at UCLA, USA, report an AI-designed camera that performs class-specific imaging and encryption of target objects with instantaneous erasure of other undesired object classes. The success of this new camera was experimentally demonstrated using terahertz waves and 3D-printed diffractive layers that selectively imaged only one class of handwritten digits, all-optically erasing all the other handwritten digits. This AI-designed camera is fast, data- and energy-efficient, making it ideal for task-specific, privacy-aware, and power-limited imaging applications.
