Scientists Propose Flexible THz Carrier-Envelope Phase Shifter Based on Metamaterials

A research team led by Prof. WANG Tianwu from the Aerospace Information Research Institute (AIR), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) proposes an ultra-thin THz CEP shifter composed of different MM arrays, which can modulate the CEP of broadband THz pulses in the sub-wavelength thickness range and maintain the electric field polarization (Figure 1a, b). The study was published in Advanced Optical Materials.

Datasets Unveil Impacts of Land Use and Cover Change on Sahel in Africa

Four datasets on the Sahel-Sudano-Guinean region of Africa have been recently released on the platform of the National Tibetan Plateau / Third Pole Environment Data Center. The four datasets include: 1) 30m resolution land use/cover the (1990-2020); 2) annual NPP-VIIRS (National Polar-Orbiting Partnership - Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) night time light (2013-2020); 3) long time series on night time light on the same region as data set (2), but a much longer period of time (1992-2020); 4) inventory and extent of surface water bodies (2000-2020).
