<![CDATA[A quantum leap in our understanding of the quantum world, after half a century]]> As a physical theory for predicting observations at the (subatomic) microscopic level, quantum theory is essentially impeccable. However, on the applicability of the theory at the macroscopic scale, there is still hardly any agreement among the physics community. In particular, scientists have long known that if Nature is to conform to the predictions of quantum theory (at all scales), then some commonly held beliefs would have to give way. There is, however, again no consensus on what should be dismissed.

<![CDATA[Professor Jiunn-Der Liao’s Virus Rapid Screening Test Selected for Ministry of Science Technology’s Epidemic Prevention Technology Development Program]]> COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) has spread across the entire globe, and many countries are actively working to develop rapid screening techniques. Taking a material science and engineering approach, Professor Jiunn-Der Liao from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) and his team are developing nanoscale trap-based capture technology to catch antigen particles even if there is just one particle present. The test would relieve the need for repetitive nucleic acid or other serologic testing, and be able to detect the presence of the target virus simply by analyzing the chemical composition of the viral envelope. Coupled target virus with hot-spot test cluster has also been developed by Prof. Liao’s team, the viral signals can be further identified to enable detection within a minute. This screening technology was selected to be part of the Ministry of Science and Technology’s (MoST) development project for epidemic prevention technologies, and will be applied towards developing COVID-19 test pieces. The technology is expected to contribute to ongoing efforts in epidemic prevention.
