Discovery of Weyl Semimetals Was Selected by APS as One of the Highlights of the Year 2015

27-01-2016

The work: Experimental discovery of Weyl semimetal TaAs by the Hong Ding’s group at the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was selected by American Physical Society (APS) as one of the highlights of the year 2015. The ARPES measurements were performed at the “Dreamline” beamline of the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF). Read More

Observation of Three-component Fermions in the Topological Semimetal Molybdenum Phosphide

In quantum field theory, Lorentz invariance leads to three types of fermion—Dirac, Weyl and Majorana. Although the existence of Weyl and Majorana fermions as elementary particles in high-energy physics is debated, all three types of fermion have been proposed to exist as low-energy, long-wavelength quasiparticle excitations in condensed-matter systems.

ENL Links Histone Acetylation to Oncogenic Gene Expression in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia

Cancer cells are characterized by aberrant epigenetic landscapes and often exploit chromatin machinery to activate oncogenic gene expression programs. Recognition of modified histones by ‘reader’ proteins constitutes a key mechanism underlying these processes; therefore, targeting such pathways holds clinical promise, as exemplified by the development of bromodomain and extra-terminal (BET) inhibitors.

Biaxially Strained PtPb/Pt Core/shell Nanoplate Boosts Oxygen Reduction Catalysis

21-12-2016

Compressive surface strains have been necessary to boost oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) activity in core/shell M/platinum (Pt) catalysts (where M can be nickel, cobalt, or iron). We report on a class of platinum-lead/platinum (PtPb/Pt) core/shell nanoplate catalysts that exhibit large biaxial strains. Read More
