Campus Development with Recognition 校園發展項目屢獲表揚

PolyU endeavours to bring green elements and designs into all new developments. To prepare forthenew four-year degree structure to be commenced in 2012/13 academic year, extensive capitalprojects have been undertaken on campus. We strive to build and operate new campus facilities inanenvironmentally sustainable manner. In addition to incorporating “green” elements incampusdevelopments, it is also our target to continue acquiring the recognition from the IAQ (Indoor AirQuality) Certification Scheme for Offices and Public Places, as well as to apply the BuildingEnvironmentalAssessment Method (BEAM) for all newly built premises so as to reduce their energy, water andmaterialconsumptions compared to conventionalbuildings.

理大致力於在所有新發展項目加入綠色設計元素。為迎接2012年開始實施的全新四年制本科學位課程架構,我們開展了多宗大型的校園建築工程項目。我們希望以環境可持續發展的方式建造和管理新校園設施。除在設施發展項目加入可持續發展元素外,我們盡量採用環保設計,同時繼續參與「辦公室及公眾場所室 內空氣質素檢定計劃」,通過檢定取得證書,以及在所有新建樓宇採用「香港建築環境評估法」(BEAM),藉此將能源、水和物料用量減至低於傳統建築物的水平。

The following table outlines the major recognitions that we have received during the reporting yearwith regard to campusdevelopment.

下表列出我們的校園建造項目於匯報期內所榮獲的重要獎項。

理大的研究團隊於2011 及2012 年繼續致力於增進社會整體福祉和促進環境可持續發展,憑着佳績連續於日內瓦國際發明展中榮獲多項創新大獎。以下是一些獲獎研究項目。

 

Enhancing the General Welfare of the Society 增進社會整體福祉

3D Ultrasound Imaging for Spine Scoliosis – Gold Medal and Mau Award for the Best Educational Innovation from Mehr Alborz University in I.R.IRAN (2012) 三維超聲脊柱側彎評估-金獎及伊朗大學特別大獎(2012)

In the past, X-ray imaging is often used to diagnose spine deformity. However, X-ray may pose radiation hazards to patients, especially female adolescents. Based on ultrasound technology, a 3D imaging system has been developed by our biomedical researchers to perform measurement and evaluation of spine without using radiation. Besides providing mobility features for easy installation, the system allows patients to take 3D ultrasound measurement on spine as frequently as required without worrying about potential exposure to radiation.

過去脊柱側彎一般用X光成像作診斷,但X光的輻射會對病人構成危害,尤其是年輕女性風險更大。我們的生物醫學研究人員基於三維超聲成像技術,開發了一套無輻射的脊柱側彎量度及評估系統。這套系統除了易於安裝及方便移動之外,還可經常使用,病人毋須憂慮輻射的潛在危險。

 

A Novel QPAR Technique for Extracting Valuable Information from Herbal Medicines – Gold Medal (2012) QPAR:提取中藥內隱藏珍貴訊息的創新技術-金獎 (2012)

A novel quantitative-pattern-activity-relationship (QPAR) technique has been introduced by PolyU researchers aiming to answer key issues when studying the effectiveness of complex herbal medicines. QPAR not only can reduce the required analysis time and costs, it also helps to predict overall functional activity of herbal medicines based on the chromatographic profile and identify particular features associated with the activity. Besides herbal medicines, QPAR may also be utilized to analyze bioactive, functional or toxic ingredients in food and agricultural plants, to benefit the general public.

理大研究人員發明的量化模式與生物活性關係(QPAR)創新技術,可解決研究中藥複合物成效時遇到的難題。QPAR不僅節省分析時間和成本,還可根據色譜圖譜預測草本中藥的整體功能活性,以及界定與活性有關的特點。除了評估中藥,QPAR 亦可分析食物和農作物的生物活性,功能或毒性成份,造福大眾。

 

Preparation of Selenium Nanoparticles with Strong Anti-Tumor Activity Using Tiger Milk Mushroom – Gold Medal and The Prize of the Chinese Delegation (2012) 利用虎奶菇製備抗腫瘤納米硒的嶄新方法-金獎及中國代表團獎 (2012)

Due to its excellent anti-tumor activity and low toxicity, selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) have attracted more and more attention. However, SeNPs can aggregate easily to reach beyond nanosize and lose their anti-tumor activity significantly. By using the polysaccharide-protein complexes (PSP) extracted from tiger milk mushroom, SeNPs were successfully prepared with a high level of stability. It was found that the SeNPs generated by this novel method could prevent the growth of certain human breast cancer cells, while causing no harm to the normal body cells.

納米硒(SeNPs) 由於具有抗腫瘤活性強及毒性低等特質,近年成為新的研究焦點。然而,納米硒的納米粒 子極易聚集以致超過納米尺度,導致抗腫瘤活性大大減低。我們成功利用虎奶菇菌核提取多糖蛋白複合物, 製備出高穩定性的納米硒。初步研究發現以這種新方法穩定化的納米硒能抑止某些人類乳癌細胞生長,而 對正常細胞則幾乎沒有損害。

 

A Novel Optical Method for Retarding Myopia Progression– Grand Prize and Gold Medal with Jury’s Commendation (2011) 放緩近視增長的嶄新技術-特別大獎及評審團嘉許金獎(2011)

Many people worldwide suffer from myopia (short-sightedness) from an early age. Unfortunately, there is lack of clinically approved method for controlling its progression in children and youth. Researchers from the School of Optometry have introduced a new multi-zone bifocal soft contact lens named “DISC”, which can offer users with clear vision at all viewing distances as well as constant optical defocus to prevent shortsightedness. Without relying on medicine or surgical operation, the initial application study among Hong Kong schoolchildren (age of 8-13) demonstrated its effectiveness in reducing myopic progression by 50%.

許多近視患者從小視力便出現問題,遺憾的是目前尚未有醫學認可的方法控制兒童及青少年近視增長。理 大眼科視光學院的研究人員發明了一種名為DISC的嶄新多區域雙光軟性隱形眼鏡,不論視覺距離如何亦能保持視力清晰,並有光學離焦功能預防近視。新技術毋須藥物或手術,在初步應用研究中,參與的香港學 童(8-13 歲) 近視增加減緩50%,成效理想。

 

Helping to Sustain the Environment 促進環境可持續發展

A Novel Inline Hydropower System for Power Generation from Water Pipelines – Silver Medal (2012) 內聯閉式輸水管水力發電系統-銀獎 (2012)

Underground water pipe network needs to be monitored constantly to ensure reliable water supply to the city. To operate monitoring devices in remote areas without power grid can be very challenging. A hydro power system invented by PolyU can convert the superfluous water flowing through the pipe into electric power. Owing to its compact size, the system can be fitted in the limited space often found in city underground. The system has already been applied at several locations by Water Supplies Department of the Hong Kong SAR Government, providing renewable and continuous power to support real-time water pipe monitoring.

地下水管網絡必須經常監察,以確保穩定的城市供水,可是在未接駁公眾電網的偏遠地區操作監察設備是 一件困難的事。理大發明的水力發電系統可將流過水管的水能轉化為電力,而且體積細小,適合在市區常見的地底狹窄空間使用。香港特區政府轄下的水務署已在多個地點試用此新系統,提供不間斷的可再生電 源進行實時水管監察。

 

Lead-free Ferroelectrics Based Microrefrigerator – Gold Medal (2012) 基於無鉛鐵電材料的微型製冷器-金獎 (2012)

Microrefrigerators are used for cooling high-powermicroelectronic components, and have application potentialin making lightweight refrigerators or air conditioners. The conventional vapor compression technology requires Freon or its alternatives, creating a negative effect on the ozone layer surrounding the earth. The lead-free ferroelectric microrefrigerators introduced by a research team at PolyU provides a more environmentally friendly refrigeration technology than the conventional method. These microrefrigerators can achieve energy efficiency of 86% and consist of electro-caloric refrigeration units whose size is 0.5 to 2 mm. The refrigerants are lead-free and can achieve a refrigeration effect over 4J/g under designated voltage.

微型製冷器可用於冷卻高功率微型電子元件,並可能適用於製造輕型雪櫃或空調器。傳統的蒸汽壓縮技術使用氟利昂(Freon) 或其替代品,對圍繞地球的臭氧層構成損害。理大研究人員發明的無鉛鐵電材料製冷器是一種比傳統方法更環保的製冷技術。微型製冷器的能效可達86%, 由尺寸介於0.5至2毫米的微型電熱材料結構組成。製冷材料不含鉛,並可在指定電壓下實現超過4 焦耳╱克的製冷量。

 

Solar Powered Air Conditioning System for Vehicles –Special Prize and Silver Medal (2011) 太陽能供電的汽車空調系統-特別獎及銀獎 (2011)

A research team at PolyU has invented an innovative solar power system that can be installed on any type of vehicle. This solar power system, when combined with other energy-saving techniques such as variable speed drive for air-conditioning and dual power control, is able to supply sufficient electricity to run electronics and air-conditioning onboard for long hours when the engine is switched off. It is estimated that after using such a renewable energy system, a vehicle operating 6 hours per day can reduce about 4 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

理大研究人員成功開發了一種適用於多類汽車的創新太陽能供電系統。新系統配合其他節能技術如空調變速驅動器和雙電源模式,即使汽車關上引擎時也可供應足夠電力讓電子儀器及空調運作多個小時。按照估計,安裝了這種可再生能源系統的汽車每日行駛6小時,每年可減少排放約4 噸二氧化碳。
