USTC Unveils the First Quantum Memory that Records the Orbital Angular Momentum of a Single Photon
The cold atomic physics research group of Key Laboratory of Quantum Information, CAS, led by academician GUO Guangcan, has achieved significant progress for high-dimensional quantum memory: the group leader, Prof. SHI Baosen and his collaborators realize the storage and release of a single photon with a spatial structure, carrying the orbital angular momentum (OAM) in a cold atomic ensemble for the first time. This progress clearly demonstrates the possibility for high-dimensional quantum memori

USTC has a steady increase of SCI papers and beat the other universities of China in “High Impact” papers, according to the 2012 statistical data of Chinese S&T papers released by the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China on Sep 27th. It is the tenth year that USTC got the highest citations per paper among the C9 universities in China.
International Workshop on Frontiers of Combustion Chemistry Held
The international workshop on frontiers of combustion chemistry was inaugurated in USTC on September 26th. More than 60 professors in combustion chemistry from home and abroad attended the meeting, on which a series of discussion around the latest advances and frontier researches in the field of combustion chemistry were carried out.
Krill Abundance Changes Over the Past 8000 Years Inferred from Penguin Tissues
Modern krill stocks have been estimated directly by net hauls and acoustic surveys. But how can people know the historical krill density, especially the long-term one prior to human intervenes? It is far from easy. Fortunately, with the novel method developed by the research group led by Prof. SUN Liguang from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), the relative krill abundance in East Antarctica during the Holocene is no longer a mystery to human beings.
New Graphene-like Ultrathin Nanosheets for High Energy Density, Flexible Pseudocapacitors
Recently, breakthrough in 2D graphene analogues research have been achieved by the co-efforts of Prof. XIE Yi's research group, from University of Science and Technology of China, and Prof. YU Guihua's team, from the University of Texas at Austin. The newly discovered material makes the flexible ultrathin-flim supercapacitors in all-solid-state with high redox potential and high energy density possibly into practice.
A rapidly growing demand for portable consumer electronics has greatly pues re
