Overlooked CO2 Emissions Induced by Air Pollution Control Devices in China's Coal-Fired Power Plants
Chinese Academy of Sciences

China's rapid industrialization and economic growth have led to an increasing demand for energy, with coal being the primary source of power generation. As a result, China boasts the world's largest fleet of coal-fired power plants (CFPPs), contributing over 60% of its domestic electricity supply. However, the operation of these CFPPs has also resulted in significant air pollutant emissions, leading to adverse impacts on public health and the environment.

Fabrication of Nanoscale Photonic Crystals with Ultrafast Laser
Chinese Academy of Sciences

Photonic crystal structures have excellent light control properties and are hot topics in the field of photonics. For the preparation of photonic crystal structures with nanoscale three-dimensional spatial resolution inside the crystal, new femtosecond laser processing technologies are urgently needed. Scientists in China proposed a photonic crystal structure fabrication method based on nanoscale femtosecond laser multi-beam lithography. The technique will open possible ways to fabricate nanostructures for applications in optical communication and light manipulation.
