National Sun Yat-sen University is a leading public research university located in Gushan District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It is considered as one of the most prestigious universities in Cross-Strait Economic Zone, 4th best ranked higher education institution in Taiwan, and one of 40 best universities under the age of 50 worldwide.Named after Dr. Sun Yat-sen, NSYSU was founded in 1980 as a re-established version of the original Sun Yat-sen University. This re-establishment has been made possible through the efforts of alumni of both the original Sun Yat-sen University and the historical Moscow Sun Yat-sen University.NSYSU comprises six colleges and is well known for its oceanography, cutting-edge technologies, business management, political science programs and strong ties with government officials. It presently receives funding from the "Aim for the Top University Project" of Taiwan’s Ministry of Education and is one of the four universities that make up Taiwan's Public Ivy, the Taiwan Comprehensive University System.The NSYSU campus is a natural fortress, it's surrounded on four sides by sea and mountain.

An adjustable aerodynamic lens system for aerodynamic focusing of aerosols comprises a hollow tube having an inlet terminal, an outlet terminal and a focusing segment located between the inlet terminal and the outlet terminal. The focusing segment includes a plurality of section tubes assembled in a manner to selectively focus aerosols of a specific average size. Each of the section tubes has a focusing orifice, and the diameters of the two adjacent focusing orifices are different. In specific, the section tubes having their focusing orifices of appropriate diameters are chosen according to the average size of aerosol particles to be focused, and assembled in sequence, so as to make aerosol fluid passing through to form a beam of aerosol particles with good focusing quality.

A resistive random access memory includes a first electrode, a separating medium, a resistance changing layer and a second electrode. The first electrode has a mounting face. The separating medium has a first face in contact with the mounting face, a second face opposite to the first face, and an inner face extending between the first and second faces. The separating medium forms a through hole extending from the first to second face. A part of the mounting face is not covered by the separating medium. The separating medium has a first dielectric. The resistance changing layer extends along the part of the mounting face as well as the inner and second faces. The resistance changing layer has a second dielectric having a dielectric constant larger than a dielectric constant of the first dielectric by 2 or less. The second electrode is arranged on the resistance changing layer.
