New technology could come soon from single-layer amorphous carbon following new research


Recently, Professor Lin Junhao’s research group in the Department of Physics at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) worked with teams from Vanderbilt University and the National University of Singapore (NUS) to make a vital breakthrough in amorphous materials. The international team has successfully synthesized monolayer amorphous carbon (MAC) at low dimensional limits, and accurately measured the atomic structure of the NAC at the atomic scale for the first time. The research results were published in Nature titled “Synthesis and properties of free-standing monolayer amorphous carbon.”

ESS faculty member goes to Antarctica for national research project


Earthquake process understanding improved dramatically under international research collaboration


The earthquakes that shattered nearly twenty years of significant seismic silence in Southern California on 4 July 2019 were part of a set of shocks that led to a fundamentally improved understanding of the fault rupture process.

SUSTech researchers make new progress in intermetallic nanocatalysts


There is significant research into new materials for fuel cells that directly electro-oxidize formic acid into carbon dioxide, but the development of high noble metal mass‐normalized activity and long‐term stability catalysts remain a significant challenge for the commercialization of direct liquid fuel cells.

SUSTech chemistry undergraduate students shine light on perovskite solar cells in published research


With research into solar cells booming across the world, it has become critical to find new and innovative ways to maximize their efficiency in commercially viable ways. Improving their ability to convert sunlight into energy is vital to improving their effectiveness for society.

Natural product synthesis improves through SUSTech research


The synthesis of natural products that feature good biologically active applications have been the source of significant research, but their often congested organic structures make their chemical synthesis extremely challenging.
