Producing efficient LEDs based on 2D perovskite material breakthrough
A research co-led by CityU has worked on 2D perovskite materials with a simple organic molecule and succeeded to realise highly efficient and bright green LEDs.
New study: Goats more ‘cognitively flexible’ than sheep
Goats can adapt to changing environmental conditions more quickly than sheep probably because of different feeding ecologies, according to a new study involving Dr Alan McElligott, an expert in animal behaviour and welfare at CityU.
CityU excels on global top scientists list
According to metrics compiled by Stanford University, over 140 CityU faculty members are listed among the top 2% of the world's most highly cited scientists, reflecting the high academic standard of our faculty and our excellent research performance.
CityU researcher: desexing cats before 4 months can reduce the number of unwanted kittens
Big-data research led by a CityU researcher has found that although more than 80% of cats in Australia were desexed, only a fraction have had surgery before reaching puberty, thus creating a “pregnancy gap”. It is recommended that the age of desexing is before four months.
Pioneering ‘synapses’ promise record-low energy use for future AI
The energy consumption of a new artificial visual system developed through joint research led by CityU can be reduced by over 90% per synaptic event when compared to synapses in the human brain.
Health and medical research funding for three Covid-19 projects
Three projects at CityU have been granted $8.3 million in funding by the Health and Medical Research Fund under the Food and Health Bureau, spotlighting our valuable contributions to fighting Covid-19.
Kangaroo research
A research team led by a scientist at CityU has discovered that kangaroos can intentionally communicate with humans, challenging the notion that this behaviour is usually restricted to domesticated animals like dogs, horses or goats.
