CityU’s huge success at Inventions Geneva Evaluation Days 2022
Researchers at CityU received tremendous accolades at Inventions Geneva Evaluation Days (IGED) 2022 by winning a total of 22 awards, the highest number among local institutions for two years in a row.
Distinguished CityU scholar wins Green Tech Award
Professor Wang Zuankai of CityU is one of nine recipients to win the 2021 Green Tech Award organised by the Meituan Green Tech Fund for his innovative multidisciplinary research on low carbon cooling and nature-inspired engineering.
Super-elastic high-entropy Elinvar alloy discovered with potential for aerospace engineering
A research team led by a CityU scholar and other researchers have discovered a first-of-its-kind super-elastic alloy that can retain its stiffness even after being heated to 1,000 K (about 727 ℃) or above, with nearly zero energy dissipation. The team believes that the alloy can be applied in manufacturing high-precision devices for space missions.
CityU new structured thermal armour achieves liquid cooling above 1,000°C; solves challenge presented by Leidenfrost effect since 1756
A CityU research team has recently designed a structured thermal armour that achieves efficient liquid cooling even over 1,000°C, fundamentally solving a 266-year-old challenge presented by the Leidenfrost effect.
