A research team at The Swire Institute of Marine Science experimentally assessed whether adult sea urchins that are exposed to marine heatwaves could pass beneficial protective mechanisms onto their offspring, thus ensuring the survival of the next generation.
A research team at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has developed a new electrode design that gives recharging capabilities to alkaline zinc batteries, one of the most common types of non-rechargeable batteries used.
Researchers have developed a more durable and cost-effective hydrogen fuel cell, offering promising applications to green energy.
Dr Zhang Rui has shown for the first time how liquid crystals could form the basic elements needed for logic operations. Zhang developed this theoretical approach while he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago. He joined the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2020. Croucher caught up with Zhang to learn more about the research group he set up here.
