  • Several promising progress made to move forward to solid-state lithium-metal batteries
    A critical factor in next-generation energy storage systems is that all-solid-state lithium-metal batteries are expected to provide better safety and higher energy density than traditional lithium batteries which contain liquid materials inside which can be unsafe, flammable and hard to recycle. The significant difference in all-solid-state lithium-metal batteries is the solid electrolytes which r...

  • Realizing room temperature ultra-broad spectrum photodetection by a single photodetector
    Since different gases have different characteristic peaks, spectrum detection technology can be used to detect various gases. The current full-spectrum (from ultraviolet to infrared) detection technology usually utilizes multiple discrete detectors with different wavelength bands, thus the system is relatively complex, with an unsatisfactory performance, high dark currents, and rare response spect...

  • A new strategy for bionic meso-assembly-processing engineering
    In natural silk spinning process, the molecular assembly synergistically realizes the complex and ordered mesoscopic hierarchies. Inspired by this, SPST Ling Shengjie's group cooperated with Yao Yuan's group from ZJU-Hangzhou Global Scientific and Technological Innovation Center, to combine the “molecular-supramolecular assembly” and “phase transition-induced mechanical training” ...

  • A new approach to modulate thermal relaxation rate of photoswitches
    ——Adding salt will slow down
    Photoswitches are a class of molecules that can change their structural geometry after light exposure, and have wide applications in light-responsive materials, ion transport, and biomedicine. The speed at which the photoswitch changes structural geometry (i.e. thermal relaxation rate) is an important factor that determines its application scenarios, so the regulation of this performance is of gre...

  • ShanghaiTech scientists systematically quantifies tumor immunoediting signals
    Tumor immunotherapy, enhancing the immune system to kill tumor cells and to exert clinical effects, is a revolutionary breakthrough in the field of tumor therapy. Tumor neoantigens are polypeptides with antigenicity resulting from DNA mutations and the key factors in determining the immunogenicity of tumor cells and the clinical efficacy of tumor immunotherapy. However, neoantigen immunogenicity p...

  • A series of important progress made in natural language processing
    Syntactic parsing, including dependency parsing and constituency parsing, studies automatic discovery of internal structures of sentences (e.g., subject-predicate-object structures, various types of phrase structures, coordinating and subordinating relations between words). Syntactic parsing is a fundamental task in natural language processing (NLP) that can be used to provide useful information f...

  • New progress in research on narrow band gap perovskite solar cells
    Compared with traditional solar cells, perovskite solar cells have the characteristics of high efficiency and low cost, and are considered to be the most promising next-generation solar cells. However, the widely used lead perovskite material has a wide band gap, which limits its theoretical maximum efficiency. In recent years, tandem solar cells based on the superposition of wide-bandgap and narr...
