Extremely strong and yet incredibly ductile multicomponent alloys developed
A research team led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a novel strategy to develop new high-strength alloys which are extremely strong and yet also ductile and flexible. The strategy overcomes the critical issues of the strength-ductility trade-off dilemma, paving the way for developing innovative structural materials in future.
Chemo Assay
Neuronal development is often regulated by the graded distribution of guidance molecules, which can either attract or repel the neuronal migration or neurite projection when presented in a format of concentration gradients, or chemotaxis. However, many details about the process is largely unexplored.
The 35th World Cultural Council Award Ceremony successfully held at CityU
The 35th World Cultural Council (WCC) Award Ceremony, hosted in Hong Kong and the Greater China region for the first time, was successfully held at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) on 8 November.
Handy and user-friendly sensor enhances food safety
A new system for testing food safety developed by an interdisciplinary research team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) can rapidly detect contaminants in food in ten minutes with concentrations of less than 0.2ppm (parts per million).
Tiny soft robot with multilegs paves way for drugs delivery in human body
A novel tiny, soft robot with caterpillar-like legs capable of carrying heavy loads and adaptable to adverse environment was developed from a research led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU). This mini delivery-robot could pave way for medical technology advancement such as drugs delivery in human body.
Smaller, faster and more efficient modulator sets to revolutionize optoelectronic industry
A research team comprising members from City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Harvard University and renowned information technologies laboratory - Nokia Bell Labs - has successfully fabricated a tiny on-chip lithium niobate modulator, an essential component for the optoelectronic industry. The modulator is smaller, more efficient with faster data transmission and costs less. The technology is set to revolutionise the industry.
Professor Luk Kwai-man
One of the top scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the UK in recognition of his profound contributions to advancing the development of antennas.
Disorder or Driver? A New Theoretical Model to Study the Effects of Nomophobia on Job Productivity
How much time per day do you spend on your smart phone? Nomophobia, meaning anxiety of being without a mobile phone, has been confirmed to a universal phenomenon in studies in various countries. But how nomophobia affected employee’s work-related outcomes was yet to know. A social scientist at City University of Hong Kong and her research team have developed a new theoretical model to explain the dual effect of nomophobia on employees’ job productivity. 
A research team led by Professor Li Ying has recently discovered a brain signalling molecule that can improve decision-making performance.
A research team led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has discovered a brain signalling molecule that can improve decision-making performance. The discovery paves the way for effectively mitigating cognitive dysfunctions caused by chronic pain. 
Professor Lu Jian (left), Dr Liu Guo and the research team have developed the world's first-ever 4D printing for ceramics.
A research team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has achieved a ground-breaking advancement in materials research by successfully developing the world’s first-ever 4D printing for ceramics, which are mechanically robust and can have complex shapes. This could turn a new page in the structural application of ceramics.
