Prof. Arieh Warshel Lectures Computational Biology in the Forum of Great Minds
Prof. Arieh Warshel, 2013 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry, shared his work in computational studies on the functional properties of biological molecules at the Forum of Great Minds on July 4th at USTC. During the lecture entitled “How to Model the Action of Complex Biological Systems on a Molecular Level?”, Prof. Warshel introduced the methods that combined quantum and classical mechanics to calculate the courses of chemical reactions using computers.
[Global Times]Chinese Physicists’ Quantum Achievement Signals Dawn of Supercomputer
Quantum achievement signals dawn of supercomputer
Chinese physicists realized a genuine entanglement of 18 quantum particles, beating their own world record set in 2016, while the team has set their next goal at 50-qubit entanglement.
The result of the study was published in the US journal Physical Review Letters on June 28.
Chinese leading quantum physicist PAN Jianwei led the project. Together with his team, PAN earlier demonstrated quantum entanglement with 10 quantum bits, or "qubits," in
[China Daily]Chinese Scientists Break Quantum Computing Record
Chinese physicists have achieved quantum entanglement with 18 qubits, surpassing the previous world record of 10. This represents a step toward realizing large-scale quantum computing, according to recent study published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which two or more entangled subatomic particles, or qubits, can theoretically affect each other simultaneously regardless of distance. The idea was so counterintuitive that Albert Einstein mocked it
USTC Student LV Song Named the Chinese Student of the Year
LU Song, USTC PhD student, from the Department of Thermal Science and Energy Engineering, has been named as the 13th Chinese Student of the Year. Two more USTC students FENG Chao (master from the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale) and XU Gaoyang (undergraduate from the Department of Physics) were both shortlisted among the 200 finalists for this award. The prestigious Chinese Student of the Year was co-awarded by the People’s Daily Online, the China Campus, the UN

Artificial Intelligence Aided Diagnosis and Treatment Center, which is established jointly by Anhui Provincial Hospital of China and iFlytek, has been operated for almost a year since August 20, 2017. “Xiao yi” is one example of the A
USTC’s Immunology Journal CMI Receives Record High Impact Factor of 7.551 for 2017
The Clarivate Analytics announced the impact factor of the Cellular & Molecular Immunology (CMI) to be 7.551 for 2017 on June 27. CMI now ranks in Q1 category (top 25%) and 16 of 155 (10th with the review journals excluded) among the international immunology journals, rising from 26th in 2016. Besides, CMI is currently the 8th out of 203 Chinese SCI journal and the 1st academy-run journal worldwide (US, Europe and Japan).
Scientists Achieved Direct Measurement of the Winding Number in Quantum Walks
Scientists from Key Laboratory of Quantum Information have directly measured the winding number in a quantum walk with chiral symmetry for the first time by a large-scale quantum-walk platform up to 50 steps based on the time multiplexing protocol. It is a collaborative work by Prof. LI chuanfeng, Prof. HAN Yongjian and Dr. XU Xiaoye’s teams, and the result is published online in Physical Review Letterson June 27.
Researchers Reveal the Photon Behaviors in a Birefringent Interferometer for the First Time
By successfully constructing a quantum optical model for a birefringent interferometer, Prof. SHI Baosen’s team revealed for the first time the interference behavior of photons in this interferometer, and experimental demonstration agrees very well with the theoretical predictions. Main results have been published in “Physical Review Letters” [Phys. Rev. Lett. 120, 263601(2018)]. The work is carried out at The CAS Key Laboratory of Quantum Information, led by academician GUO Guangcan.

Chinese hospitals are classified into six levels - from 3A at the top to 1B - which GAO Junwen, deputy head of the Anhui Province Health Commission, said results in some market distortions.
"A higher level means the hospital has stronger medical strengths," GAO said. "Though many patients just have some minor illness and should have turned to lower-level hospitals - such as community hospitals -
Reports on the Forum of Great Minds
Invited by the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and the Science and Technology Bureau of Hefei, the US National Academy of Sciences member Prof. Susan S.
