Novel Double Helix Yarn Piezoresistive Sensor for Pulse Monitoring
Textiles woven with yarn are used in remote medical diagnosis with intelligent electronic sensing technology. However, the derived inconsistent signals are one of the problems yet to be solved. A research led by a scholar from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) was inspired by the structure of DNA and found that textiles woven with double helix structure can help overcome the said challenge.
improperly discarded surgical masks threaten the marine ecosystem and food chain
Surgical masks have been part of essential personal protection during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the inappropriate disposal of surgical masks can cause serious microplastic pollution, equivalent to seriously polluting more than 54,800 Olympic-sized swimming pools of seawater annually, researchers from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) discovered.
droplet wrap
A research team led by a scholar from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has successfully developed a novel droplet manipulation method called “WRAP” which can transport droplets of different sizes and compositions by electromagnets or programmable electromagnetic fields.
transverse sound wave
Can you imagine sound travels in the same way as light does? A research team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) discovered a new type of sound wave: the airborne sound wave vibrates transversely and carries both spin and orbital angular momentum like light does.
AI predicting synergistic cancer drug combinations
A research team led by a scholar from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has recently developed a novel artificial intelligence (AI) framework that can make synergistic anti-cancer drug combination predictions on both the therapeutic and toxic effects.
Piezoceramics with controllable curves
Functional piezoceramics can be used in sensors and actuators, yet brittleness of the material and its difficulty in shaping after fabrication have hindered its applications. A research led by a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has proposed a pioneering and simple fabrication method that combined heat and gravity, to produce functional, curved piezoceramics in a controllable manner.
MXene
A collaborative research team led by scientists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has recently developed battery-like MXene electrodes with stable voltage output and high energy density by using a high-voltage scanning strategy. These latest findings may lead to a breakthrough in inventing the powerful battery of the next generation. “
3D printing
A research led by scientists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has successfully developed a super-strong, highly ductile and super-light titanium-based alloy using additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing.
photocatalysis
Green hydrogen production from solar water splitting has attracted a great deal of interest in recent years because hydrogen is a fuel of high energy density. A research team co-led by scholars from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Germany discovered the quantum confinement effect in a photocatalyst of a 3D-ordered macroporous structure.
a.b
Microbiologists and chemists from two universities in Hong Kong recently made a breakthrough in synthesizing the first vaccine against one of the most deadly antimicrobial resistant pathogens, Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii).
