The research team led by Prof. LU Yi-Chun has taken a critical step forward in improving high-energy batteries by introducing a novel electrolyte to the aqueous lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. This electrolyte is commonly used in skin cream. It is inexpensive, non-flammable, less toxic and is eco-friendly, yet can create stable voltage for common usage. The […]
A strategy that selects the optimised bio-inspired microrobotic swarms in different bio-fluids was developed by Prof. ZHANG Li and his research team. The swarms reported may lead to high possibilities in medical applications, and this work is a significant intermediate step from a fundamental understanding of microrobotic swarms to their clinic applications. Nature Communications, a […]
Prof. CHEN Shih-Chi and his team from MAE Department, collaborated with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to develop the “Femtosecond Projection Two-photon Lithography (FP-TPL)” printing technology. By controlling the laser spectrum via temporal focusing, the laser 3D printing process is performed in a parallel layer-by-layer fashion instead of point-by-point writing. This new technique substantially increases […]
A research team led by Prof. LIAO Wei-Hsin has developed a lightweight smart materials-based energy harvester for scavenging energy from human motion, generating inexhaustible and sustainable power supply just from walking. Specifically, the device can capture biomechanical energy from the motion of the human knee and then convert it to electricity which can be used […]
The year of 2019 marks the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of MAE Department in CUHK. We are very pleased to see our honorable guests and alumni in the Homecoming Anniversary Dinner celebrating this special occasion with us. Let us work together to create many prosperous 25 years ahead! Robot demonstrations at the reception Toasting ceremony […]
