HKUST and UChicago researchers find new ways of leveraging topological defects in liquid crystals to make “computer”

Researchers at the HKUST and the University of Chicago (UChicago) have shown for the first time how to design the basic elements needed for logic operations using a kind of soft material called liquid crystal, paving the way for a completely novel way of performing computations with potential applications in robotics.

HKUST scientists reveal the mechanism of skeletal muscle stem cell activation in muscle regeneration

A research team led by LIFS Assoc. Prof. Tom CHEUNG has discovered the constructive role of a protein in driving the skeletal muscle stem cell activation to repair muscle following damage, laying the foundation for further study in the mechanisms of stem cell quiescence-to-activation transition and stem cell-based muscle regeneration.

科大共同研究发现食盐的拓扑特性及其角落电荷

粤语中有「我食盐多过你食米」一说。虽然言者未必有意听者亦无须太认真,但这句俗语却的确带出了「食盐」在我们日常生活中的重要性。而你又可有想过,守候在餐桌角落,重要却不起眼的食盐,竟然会与前沿物理研究及抽象数学理论扯上关系呢?
