At regions surrounding grain boundaries, the majority of activated dislocation slip traces were found to form in pairs across grain boundary, and the basal-to-basal (B-B) slip pair is the dominant type. Strain accommodation around the grain boundary interfaces is affected by both Schmid factor in the adjacent grains and the m&rsquo; value between these main slip systems. A mk value was proposed in this paper as the maximum value of the product of the Schmid factor and the m&rsquo; value of the adjacent grains to measure strain accommodation around the grain boundary interface, where a higher mk value would mean a larger local strain. It is suggested that the overall ductility of a Mg alloy could be evaluated by measuring its average mk value. As an evidence, the Mg-Gd-Y alloy tubes with higher mk value generally show higher elongations during tensile tests in this study.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Translated by Zhang Qianqian</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Sun, 04 Aug 2019 14:00:00 +0000 Otago University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Helen Nicholson Visited SJTUhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/otago-university-deputy-vice-chancellor-helen-nicholson-visited-sjtu/<p>On the afternoon of July 18, Helen Nicholson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor from the University of Otago, New Zealand visited SJTU.

To circumvent the difficulty, a prevalent viewpoint simplifies the neuronal morphology as a point representing the soma, and the excitatory and inhibitory synaptic currents originated from the dendrites are treated as linearly summed at the soma. Despite its extensive applications, the validity of the synaptic current description remains unclear, and the existing point neuron framework fails to characterize the spatiotemporal aspects of dendritic integration supporting specific computations. Using electrophysiological experiments, realistic neuronal simulations, and theoretical analyses, we demonstrate that the traditional assumption of linear summation of synaptic currents is oversimplified and underestimates the inhibition effect. We then derive a form of synaptic integration current within the point neuron framework to capture dendritic effects. In the derived form, the interaction between each pair of synaptic inputs on the dendrites can be reliably parameterized by a single coefficient, suggesting the inherent low-dimensional structure of dendritic integration. We further generalize the form of synaptic integration current to capture the spatiotemporal interactions among multiple synaptic inputs and show that a point neuron model with the synaptic integration current incorporated possesses the computational ability of a spatial neuron with dendrites, including direction selectivity, coincidence detection, logical operation, and a bilinear dendritic integration rule discovered in experiment.

In this study, we show that SUMO1/sentrin specific peptidase 1 (SENP1) regulates the development and function of MDSC. SENP1 deficiency in myeloid cells promoted MDSC expansion in bone marrow, spleen, and other organs. Senp1-/- MDSC showed stronger immune-suppressive activity than Senp1+/+ MDSC ; we observed no defects in the differentiation of myeloid precursor cell in Senp1-/- mice. Mechanistically, SENP1-mediated regulation of MDSC was dependent on STAT3 signaling. We identified CD45 as a specific STAT3 phosphatase in MDSC. CD45 was SUMOylated in MDSC and SENP1 could de-conjugate SUMOylated CD45. In Senp1-/- MDSC, CD45 was highly SUMOylated, which reduced its phosphatase activity towardSTAT3, leading to STAT3-mediated MDSC development and function. These results reveal a suppressive function of SENP1 in modulating MDSC expansion and function via CD45-STAT3 signaling axis.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Paper link: </span><a ><span>http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/early/2019/06/11/0008-5472.CAN-18-3497</span></a><span class="MsoHyperlink"><span></span></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span class="MsoHyperlink"><span>&nbsp;</span></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Translated by ZHU Fengyan&nbsp;&nbsp; Reviewed by WANG Bingyu</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Mon, 08 Jul 2019 16:14:23 +0000 Bulgarian President Rumen Radev Visited SJTU and Gave Speechhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/bulgarian-president-rumen-radev-visited-sjtu-and-gave-speech/<p>On July 5, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev and his delegation made a visit to <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a>.

The long lifetime and unique spin properties of the dark exciton provide exciting opportunities to explore light-matter interactions beyond electric dipole transitions. Here we demonstrate that the coupling of the dark exciton and an optically silent chiral phonon enables the intrinsic photoluminescence of the dark-exciton replica in monolayer WSe2. Gate and magnetic-field dependent PL measurements unveil a circularly-polarized replica peak located below the dark exciton by 21.6&thinsp;meV, equal to E&Prime; phonon energy from Se vibrations. First-principles calculations show that the exciton-phonon interaction selectively couples the spin-forbidden dark exciton to the intravalley spin-allowed bright exciton, permitting the simultaneous emission of a chiral phonon and a circularly-polarized photon. Our discovery and understanding of the phonon replica reveals a chirality dictated emission channel of the phonons and photons, unveiling a new route of manipulating valley-spin.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Huang Yiqing&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p>Fri, 14 Jun 2019 09:21:02 +0000 Shanghai University Student Debate Competition Kicks Offhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/shanghai-university-student-debate-competition-kicks-off/<p>On May 11, 2019, the 2<sup>nd</sup> "Dream Cup" Shanghai University Student Debate Competition was held in SJTU Studio.

In this study, the authors developed the PT-IC-seq technique, based on iodine-induced selective cleavage at PT sites and high-throughput next generation sequencing, as a mean to quantitatively characterizing the genomic landscape of PT modifications. Using PT-IC-seq they foud that most PT sites are partially modified at a lower PT frequency (&lt; 5%) in E. coli B7A and Salmonella enterica serovar Cerro 87, and both show a heterogeneity pattern of PT modification similar to those of the typical methylation modification. Combining the iodine-induced cleavage and absolute quantification by droplet digital PCR, the authors developed the PT-IC-ddPCR technique to further measure the PT modification level. Consistent with the PT-IC-seq measurements, PT-IC-ddPCR analysis confirmed the lower PT frequency in E. coli B7A. These results have demonstrated the heterogeneity of PT modification in the bacterial population, and will open the door to understanding biology of this novel DNA modification.</p> <p>Jinli Li, Yi Chen, Tao Zheng and Lingxin Kong are co-first authors of the paper.

The research finding has been published in the internationally renowned academic journal the <em>Nano Energy</em> (SCI IF13.12) entitled <a ><em>Piezoelectric thin film on glass fiber fabric with structural hierarchy: An approach to high-performance, superflexible,cost-effective, and large-scale nanogenerators</em></a><em>.</em></p> <p><em><img src="/assets/6393/20190320_062707_705_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="346" /></em></p> <p>This work provides a new perspective to fabricate high performance, super-flexible, cost-effective and large-scale nanogenerators and flexible sensors. It also has very promising application in the field of wearable electronic devices. He Sibo, a master student of SJTU, and Dong Wen, a postdoctor research fellow in University of Warwick are the first authors of this paper, Prof. Guo Yiping is the corresponding author and SJTU is the first working unit. Prof. Guo and his intelligent and energy composites research team have long been committed to the research and application of ferroelectric/piezoelectric functional composites, energy and catalytic materials. The research word is funded by the National Science Foundation of China (No. 11474199 and 51332009).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Abstract</p> <p>Harvesting mechanical energy using piezoelectric nanogenerator (PENG) to power portable/wearable electronic devices is a promising technology in the age of artificial intelligence. However, high-performance PENGs have often reached with either poor durability, or limited flexibility, or high cost. Here, we select glass fiber fabric (GFF) substrate as a new material platform to enable one-step and large-scale fabrication of high-performance, superflexible PENG based on coherently grown Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 thin films via a simple dipping method. With &sim;100 nm thick piezoelectric film coated on the 3.5 cm &times; 1.5  cm scale fabric, this new material platform was measured to show efficient energy harvesting (&sim;60 V, &sim;500 nA) and multi-mode (bending and pressing) energy harvesting ability with largest bending angle of 180&deg;. An 8 cm &times; 8  cm scale PENG can simultaneously light up 20 commercial green LEDs successfully. Moreover, the PENG based on the new material platform clearly shows a linear change of current/voltage as a function of strain/load, which is promising to be used as self-powered mechanical sensor as well. This work provides a new perspective to fabricate high performance, superflexible, cost-effective and large-scale nanogenerators and thus may enable rapid application in multi-energy harvesters, sensors, battery-free electronic devices.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Liu Yixuan</p> <p>Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Mon, 25 Mar 2019 14:57:14 +0000 SJTU’s Discipline of Biology and Biochemistry Ranked top 1‰ in ESI Rankinghttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/sjtus-discipline-of-biology-and-biochemistry-ranked-top-1-in-esi-ranking/<p>On March 14<sup>th</sup>, <a >Clarivate Analytics</a> updated ESI ranking of March, which demonstrated that <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a> moved up 1 notch to the 116th, compared to January.

The research titled "Production and Hadronic Decays of Higgs Bosons in Heavy-Ion Collisions"&nbsp; examines Higgs boson production and decay in heavy-ion collisions at the LHC and future colliders. Owing to the long lifetime of the Higgs boson, its hadronic decays may experience little or no screening from the hot and dense quark-gluon plasma, whereas jets from hard scattering processes and from decays of the electroweak gauge bosons and the top quark suffer significant energy loss. This distinction can lead to enhanced signal to background ratios in hadronic decay channels and thus, for example, provide alternative ways to probe the Yukawa coupling of the Higgs boson to the bottom quark and its lifetime.</span></p> <p><span><img src="/assets/6356/image001_50_normal.png" alt="" width="640" height="457" /></span></p> <p><span>Gao Jun Senior Fellow is the researcher who first initiated and finished work on this topic.

This Spring Festival is the time to recruit new members. Youth from more than 100 countries gathered together and practiced writing the&nbsp; Chinese characters "春"(chun) and "福"(fu) with writing brushes. Prof. ZHOU Bin introduced the Chinese culture through calligraphy, which was a successful culture communication practice. On the spot, the exquisite "fu" calligraphy works by Roy Ye, Executive Chairman of "Junior United Nations of Calligraphy", spread the joy and attracted many Chinese calligraphy lovers.&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="/assets/6314/3_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Celebrating the Chinese New Year by means of calligraphy has become a unique way for the United Nations International School to celebrate traditional Chinese festivals, which is also a meaningful attempt to share Chinese culture.<br />The United Nations International School is an international school for children of diplomats and United Nations officials from nearly 200 countries. More than 100 students from nearly 200 countries have been involved in Junior United Nations of Calligraphy, which has profound influence in international cultural exchanges in recent years. It acts as an platform, allowing the diplomats and their children to experience the charm of Chinese traditional culture through activities brimmed with Chinese elements. Those activities were well-received by ambassadors from various countries.<br />On the day of the activity, Prof. ZHOU Bin gave the students a lecture on Chinese culture with New Year's wishes in delightful atmosphere. Having been held for several years, the "World Peace Development and Calligraphy International Exchange - writing the character ''福" to welcome the Chinese New Year", is a branded project of the United Nations International School. It brings a beautiful vison of loving and peace expressed by Chinese people through the way of cultural exchanges.<br />&nbsp;<img src="/assets/6315/4_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon couple and the students of the Junior United Nations of Calligraphy at the United Nations International School.<br />Ban Ki-moon, chairman of the Boao Forum for Asia, said: "It is meaningful to spread the Chinese calligraphy culture to young people. Prof. ZHOU Bin has been working hard on the significant international stage to spread Chinese culture and tell the story of China. In 2018, the four-volume textbook of Chinese Calligraphy Culture, "风调雨顺", written by Prof. Bin ZHOU, provided a perfect textbook for people around the world studying Chinese calligraphy and culture."<br />&nbsp;<img src="/assets/6316/5_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /><br />The international expression of Chinese cultural elements has always been the main theme of this series of activities. Over the years, Prof. Bin ZHOU has invited guests including Ana Larrea, the UN official from Spain, Arturo Guerrero, and American artist Lucas Perez to impart and spread Chinese calligraphy. By writing the Spring Festival couplets, making lanterns and writing Chinese characters "春" and "福" together, they expressed their personal understandings of Chinese festivals and customs in the form of traditional culture. In addition, the interactive calligraphy-teaching experience, which combined communications and emotions,&nbsp; encouraged people of different nationalities to participate, experience and understand Chinese culture, and feel the charisma of calligraphy and Chinese culture as well. Based on extensive practice, Prof. ZHOU Bin has developed a creative path for spreading the art of calligraphy as well as Chinese culture.</p>Mon, 18 Feb 2019 12:42:12 +0000 Author Profile Column of the Angewandte Chemie Introduced SJTU Professor Li Xinhao’s Workhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/author-profile-column-of-the-angewandte-chemie-introduced-sjtu-professor-li-xinhaos-work/<p><em>The Angewandte Chemie</em> is maintaining its leading position among the General Chemistry journals.

The paper focuses on the results of the team's research on vascular mechanobiology in recent years, and describes the latest domestic and international research progress on the mechanical stress response of vascular cells, the vascular mechanical signal transduction network based on high-throughput biotechnology and the mechanical regulation of non-coding RNA in vascular reconstruction, and summarizes related mechanisms of mechanical factors affecting revascularization (as shown in the picture).

Mechanical stresses, such as shear stress and cyclic stretch, play an important role in vascular remodeling. Vascular cells can sense the mechanical factors through cell membrane proteins, cytoskeletons and nuclear envelope proteins to initiate mechanotransduction, which involves intercellular signaling, gene expression, and protein expression to result in functional regulations. Non-coding RNAs, including microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs, are involved in the regulation of vascular remodeling processes. Mechanotransduction triggers a cascade reaction process through a complicated signaling network in cells. High-throughput technologies in combination with functional studies targeting some key hubs and bridging nodes of the network can enable the prioritization of potential targets for subsequent investigations of clinical translation. Vascular mechanobiology, as a new frontier field of biomechanics, searches for principles of stress-growth in vasculature to elucidate how mechanical factors induce biological effects that lead to vascular remodeling, with the goal of understanding the mechanical basis of the pathological mechanism of cardiovascular diseases at the cellular and molecular levels. Vascular mechanobiology will play a unique role in solving the key scientific problems of human physiology and disease, as well as generating important theoretical and clinical results.</p> <p>Read the article: <a >https://doi.org/10.1093/nsr/nwx153</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Iga Kowalewska&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Sat, 26 Jan 2019 03:56:29 +0000 TDLI Held 13th Jiangmen Neutrino Experiment International Conferencehttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/tdli-held-13th-jiangmen-neutrino-experiment-international-conference/<p>From January 14<sup>th</sup> to 19<sup>th</sup>, the 13<sup>th</sup> Jiangmen Neutrino Experiment International Conference was held at Minhang Campus, <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a>.

Many new laboratory‐scale materials have been developed for photothermal desalination but the development of low‐cost, easy‐to‐manufacture, and scalable materials and systems that can convert solar irradiation into exploitable thermal energy in this context is still a significant challenge. This paper presents work on a geopolymer-biomass mesoporous carbon composite (GBMCC) device with mesoporous and macroporous structures for harvesting solar energy, which is then used in a device to generate water vapor with high efficiency using negative pressure, wind‐driven, steam generation. The GBMCC device gives water evaporation rates of 1.58 and 2.71 kg m-2 h-1 under 1 and 3 suns illumination, with the solar thermal conversion efficiency up to 84.95% and 67.6%, respectively. A remarkable, record high water vapor generation rate of 7.55 kg m-2 h-1 is achieved under 1 sun solar intensity at the wind speed of 3 m s-1. This is a key step forward todays efficient, sustainable and economical production of clean water from seawater or common wastewater with free solar energy.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Zhu Fengyan&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Thu, 10 Jan 2019 08:16:49 +0000 3rd Young Teachers’ Teaching Competition of SJTU Heldhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/3rd-young-teachers-teaching-competition-of-sjtu-held/<p>On January 3<sup>rd</sup>, the third Young Teachers' Teaching Competition of <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a> was held at Minhang Campus, which was jointly held by Teaching Affairs of Party Committee, <a >Academic Affairs Office</a> and <a >Graduate School</a>.

In many examples, such as bacterial systems and biofilament assays, constituent units are elongated and can give rise to local nematic orientational order. Such "active nematics" systems have attracted much attention from both theorists and experimentalists. However, despite intense research efforts, data-driven quantitative modeling has not been achieved, a situation mainly due to the lack of systematic experimental data and to the large number of parameters of current models. Here, we introduce an active nematics system made of swarming filamentous bacteria. We simultaneously measure orientation and velocity fields and show that the complex spatiotemporal dynamics of our system can be quantitatively reproduced by a type of microscopic model for active suspensions whose important parameters are all estimated from comprehensive experimental data. This provides unprecedented access to key effective parameters and mechanisms governing active nematics. Our approach is applicable to different types of dense suspensions and shows a path toward more quantitative active matter research.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Zhu Fengyan&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p>Thu, 03 Jan 2019 05:56:54 +0000 2018 SJTU “Student of the Year” Unveiled http://www.xinyongju.cn/news/2018-sjtu-student-of-the-year-unveiled/<p>On Dec. 13<sup>rd</sup> , SJTU "Student of the Year" review meeting was held on Minhang Campus.

This soft wall-climbing robot is enabled by (i) dielectric-elastomer artificial muscles that generate fast periodic deformation of the soft robotic body, (ii) electroadhesive feet that give spatiotemporally controlled adhesion of different parts of the robot on the wall, and (iii) a control strategy that synchronizes the body deformation and feet electroadhesion for stable climbing. We further demonstrate that our soft robot could carry a camera to take videos in a vertical tunnel, change its body height to navigate through a confined space, and follow a labyrinth-like planar trajectory.

Its inherently infinite dimensions can potentially be exploited by using mode multiplexing to enhance data capacity for sustaining the unprecedented growth in big data and internet traffic and can be encoded to build large-scale quantum computing machines in high-dimensional Hilbert space. While the emission of twisted light from the surface of integrated devices to free space has been widely investigated, the transmission and processing inside a photonic chip remain to be addressed. Here, we present the first laser-direct-written waveguide being capable of supporting OAM modes and experimentally demonstrate a faithful mapping of twisted light into and out of a photonic chip. The states</p> <p>OAM0, OAM-1, OAM+1, and their superpositions can transmit through the photonic chip with a total efficiency up to 60% with minimal crosstalk. In addition, we present the transmission of quantum twisted light states of single photons and measure the output states with single-photon imaging. Our results may add OAM as a new degree of freedom to be transmitted and manipulated in a photonic chip for high-capacity communication and high-dimensional quantum information processing.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Iga Kowalewska&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p>Thu, 20 Dec 2018 02:17:58 +0000 First Domestic CO2 AC system for trains developed by SJTU Prof. Chen Jiangping’s Team Launchedhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/first-domestic-co2-ac-system-for-trains-developed-by-sjtu-prof-chen-jiangpings-team-launched/<p>On Dec.8<sup>th</sup>, the first CO2 AC system for trains in China was launched, which is developed by Prof. Cheng Jiangping's team, Institute of Refrigeration and Cryogenics (IRC), SJTU.

Lecture attendees included postgraduates from New York University (NYU), Chinses language teachers in the US, and the experts and scholars from the United Nations, Yale University, Columbia University and Parsons School of Design. Mr. Zhou is currently Professor and Doctoral Advisor of USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry, and Director of Chinese Calligraphy Culture Education and Communication Center. Robin Harvey, Director of NYU's Project for Developing Chinese Language Teachers, introduced Professor Zhou to the audience. Roy Ye of Junior United Nations of Calligraphy, on behalf of Professor Zhou, presented to Ms. Harvey as a gift a set of books on the culture of Chinese calligraphy, titled <em>Seasonal Weather with Gentle Breeze and Timely Rain - Four Season</em>s. The books, of which Professor Zhou is the Editor-in-Chief and Roy Ye the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, will be educational materials for postgraduates at the university. Dr. Frank Lixing Tang, a senior professor at NYU, made a detailed introduction on Professor Zhou's work on cross-culture research, which sparked great enthusiasm in the audience.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6180/1_normal.jpg" alt="20181129" width="500" height="640" /></p> <p><img src="/assets/6181/2_normal.jpg" alt="20181129" width="480" height="640" /></p> <p>Once a visiting scholar under Dr. Tang at NYU, Professor Zhou later on became the calligraphy teacher of Mr. Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations. Over the years, Professor Zhou has been promoting Chinese culture internationally through Chinese calligraphy. Facilitated by his knowledge of cross-cultural psychology, he has enhanced cultural exchange between the East and the West through Chinese calligraphy.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6182/3_normal.jpg" alt="20181129" width="640" height="480" /></p> <p>In this lecture themed "Art, Culture and Chinese Characters", Professor Zhou elaborated on the art of Chinese characters and Chinese language education, and presented the richness of Chinese culture to the audience in easy language.</p> <p>&nbsp;"Chinese calligraphy is not only an art of writing, but also an art to express fine feelings with beautiful lines; and as a cultural concept, it needs to stay in tune with the times. That's the only way for it be to widely accepted around the world." Professor Zhou illustrated his point by referring to his new books, <em>Seasonal Weather with Gentle Breeze and Timely Rain - Four Seasons</em>, "A good cross-cultural course book for international students must contain broad information and cover diverse cultural values. The author creates a pleasant experience for learners to acquire cultural knowledge and elevate to a higher spiritual level without their deliberately seeking it..." Professor Zhou condensed five years' teaching experience in various countries and his research results on cross-cultural psychology into this set of books. As commented by Mr. Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the UN and Chairman of the Boao Forum for Asia, "<em>Seasonal Weather with Gentle Breeze and Timely Rain</em> by Professor Zhou are valuable books that inspire people around the world to learn calligraphy and cultures."&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="/assets/6183/4_normal.jpg" alt="20181129" width="640" height="480" /></p> <p>"A person's writing reflects his personality." In the lecture, Professor Zhou analyzed personalities and temperaments reflected by different writing styles from a psychological point of view. He also suggested tailoring cross-cultural education for students with different characters to effect accurate cultural communication and interaction, to which experts at the lecture unanimously agreed. Moreover, Professor Zhou's witty explanations of difficult concepts made the whole lecture very enjoyable.</p> <p>At the end of the lecture, Professor YU Erke, a renowned calligrapher based in the US, delivered his unique perspectives, "This fabulous cross-cultural lecture broke down cultural and geographical barriers. Professor Zhou has made admirable achievements in his cross-cultural and interdisciplinary work. We have reasons to believe that those achievements will push back the frontiers of Chinese calligraphy which will play a more significant role in the teaching of Chinese and promotion of Chinese culture internationally."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Source: <a >USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry</a></p>Thu, 29 Nov 2018 01:55:16 +0000 SJTU SCCE Wang Jiulin Team Advance In Lithium-Sulfur Battery Researchhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/sjtu-scce-wang-jiulin-team-advance-in-lithium-sulfur-battery-research/<p>The Wang Jiulin Research Team of Shanghai Jiao Tong University began researching high-safety lithium-sulfur batteries in 2007.

Extreme flammable conventional electrolyte and dendritic lithium deposition cause severe safety issues. Herein, we report an intrinsic flame-retardant (IFR) electrolyte consisting of 1.1 M lithium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide in a solvent mixture of flame-retardant triethyl phosphate and high flash point solvent 1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethyl 2,2,3,3-tetrafluoropropyl (1:3, v/v) for safe lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries. This electrolyte exhibits favorable flame-retardant property and high reversibility of lithium metal anode (Coulombic efficiency &gt;99%). Importantly, this IFR electrolyte enables stable lithium plating/stripping behavior with micro-sized and dense-packing lithium deposition at high temperatures. When coupled with sulfurized pyrolyzed poly(acrylonitrile) cathode (sulfur content: 52.6 wt%), Li-S batteries deliver high composite capacity (840.1 mAh g-1) and high sulfur utilization of 95.6%. More advantages of this system are its enhanced energy conversion efficiency and energy density under high temperature operation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Read the article: <a >https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/anie.201811291</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Iga Kowalewska&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p>Tue, 27 Nov 2018 07:16:42 +0000 SJTU, NVIDIA signed Memorandum on AI Calculationhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/sjtu-nvidia-signed-memorandum-on-ai-calculation/<p>On November 19<sup>th</sup>, <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a> (SJTU) and <a >NVIDIA </a>signed the memorandum on artificial intelligence calculation at the Meeting hall of <a >Shanghai Jiao Tong University Library</a> on Minhang Campus.

Here, we report cryo-electron microscopy structures of the human nuclear RNase P alone and in complex with tRNAVal. Human RNase P is a large ribonucleoprotein complex that contains 10 protein components and one catalytic RNA. The protein components form an interlocked clamp that stabilizes the RNA in a conformation optimal for substrate binding. Human RNase P recognizes the tRNA using a double-anchor mechanism through both protein-RNA and RNA-RNA interactions. Structural comparison of the apo and tRNA-bound human RNase P reveals that binding of tRNA induces a local conformational change in the catalytic center, transforming the ribozyme into an active state. Our results also provide an evolutionary model depicting how auxiliary RNA elements in bacterial RNase P, essential for substrate binding, and catalysis, were replaced by the much more complex and multifunctional protein components in higher organisms.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Chen Wanrong&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Wed, 31 Oct 2018 15:16:26 +0000 Professor Hu Jiaxiang of SJTU KoGuan Law School Publishes Paper on World Renowned Journalhttp://www.xinyongju.cn/news/professor-hu-jiaxiang-of-sjtu-koguan-law-school-publishes-paper-on-world-renowned-journal/<p>In recent days, the papaer titled <em>Dispute Resolution Mechanisms and Organizations in the Implementation of "One Belt, One Road" Initiative: Whence and Whither</em>, collaborated wrote by Professor Hu Jiaxiang of KoGuan School of Law and Associate Professor Huang Jie of Sydney Law School , was published on the<em> Journal of World Trade </em>.
