Hong Kong Baptist University is a publicly funded tertiary institution with a Christian education heritage.It was established as Hong Kong Baptist College with the support of American Baptists, who provided both operating and construction funds and personnel to the school in its early years.It became Hong Kong Baptist University in 1994 during the presidency of Dr. Daniel Tse Chi-wai, LLD, GBS, CBE, JP, who succeeded the Founding President, Dr. Lam Chi-fung, as the second president of the University in 1971. After 30 years of services to the University, Dr. Daniel Tse Chi-wai retired in 2001 and Prof. Ng Ching-fai, GBS, was appointed as the third president of the University. In 2010, Prof. Albert Chan Sun-chi assumed office as the fourth president of HKBU.HKBU has five main campuses: Ho Sin Hang Campus , Shaw Campus , Baptist University Road Campus , "Kai Tak Campus" , and Shek Mun Campus for the College of International Education and the Hong Kong Baptist University Affiliated School Wong Kam Fai Secondary and Primary School. The first three campuses are located in the urban heart of Kowloon Tong, while the Kai Tak Campus is on Kwun Tong Road and the Shek Mun Campus in Sha Tin.In 2005, the University established the Beijing Normal University - Hong Kong Baptist University United International College in Zhuhai, China. The College is the first and only tertiary education institution founded through collaboration between a Mainland university and a Hong Kong university. It sets a new model for liberal education in China, aiming to nurture graduates with an international perspective. Wikipedia.

A method is presented to minimize the helical pitch (P) of chiroplasmonic nanostructures to the molecular size-comparable scale. In particular, chiroplasmonic nanostructures can be used to induce plasmonic chirality via chirality transfer and used for chirality-related primary applications such as chiral sensing. In one aspect, there is provided a chiroptically active plasmonic nanoparticle with a helical pitch (P) less than its wire diameter (d) produced via a glancing angle deposition (GLAD) process.

The present invention relates to a solution or ink composition for fabricating high-performance thin-film transistors. The solution or ink comprises an organic semiconductor and a mediating polymer such as polyacrylonitrile, polystyrene, or the like or mixture thereof, in an organic solvent such as chlorobenzene or dichlorobenzene. The percentage ratio by weight of semiconductor:mediating polymer ranges from 5:95 to 95:5, and preferably from 20:80 to 80:20. The solution or ink is used to fabricate via solution coating or printing a semiconductor film, followed by drying and thermal annealing if necessary to provide a channel semiconductor for organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs). The resulting OTFT device with said channel semiconductor has afforded OTFT performance, particularly field-effect mobility and current on/off ratio that are superior to those OTFTs with channel semiconductors fabricated without a mediating polymer.
