High speed train goes into service in China

07.08.2008
The Velaro high speed train links Beijing and Tianjin

Just a week before the start of the 2008 Olympics, the Velaro officially entered passenger service in China. The Chinese Railway Minister Liu Zhi Jun and the Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Dejiang attended the inauguration ceremony.


The CH3, the MoR (Ministry of Railways) designation for the Velaro in China, is now the fastest high speed train in China.

A total of ten trains are running on the Beijing–Tianjin line at headways of 10 to 20 minutes, making 43 trips per day and direction. Five of these trains are from the new CRH 3 series. The Chinese Ministry of Railways offers 30-minute service on this 115-kilometer-long route.

Chinese Railways placed an order for 60 Velaro type trains. Three of them were built in Krefeld, Germany, while the other 57 units are being built by Tangshan Locomotive & Rolling Stock Works in Tangshan.

The Velaro recently set a new Chinese high speed record of 394.3 km/h on the newly opened high speed route between the Chinese capital Beijing and the coastal city of Tianjin.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
