Nanogenerator is a type of new technology that converts thermal and mechanical energy as produced by small-scale physical change into electricity. Its presence secures a stable and sustainable source of electricity that powers a wide range of small electronic devices equipped with a variety of features. A research team led by Prof. ZI Yunlong, Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), has recently developed a universal standardized method for evaluating the output capacity of nanogenerators. Compared with the conventional one, the new method can reflect the practical output capacity of the nanogenerator more accurately. This research will set an important foundation for the practical application and commercialisation of nanogenerators as an emerging energy harvesting technology. This research was published recently in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Communications (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-12465-2).

Professor Liming BIAN, Associate Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and his research team have recently developed a novel method for preparing single chain nano material which significantly improves the efficiency by a factor of 20 over that of conventional methods. The research team further investigated the impact of the dynamic molecular conformational change in such material on cellular interactions in different biomedical applications at varying scales. This paves the way for the large scale production and translation of single chain nano materials in daily life. The study has been published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Communications.
