      When ferroelectric materials are prepared as quasi-one-dimensional nanostructure arrays or mesoscale structures with a high aspect ratio, their exceptional properties attract attention in the fields of non-volatile memory devices and nano-generators. Dongjin Kim et al. on page 3842 synthesize the ferroelectric phase in mesoscale rod form by combining the recipe for crystallizing the β phase using dimethyl sulfoxide at a low temperature, and template-guided infiltration processing using anodized aluminum oxide (AAO). The results serve as a processing platform for flexible electronic devices that need high capacitance with piezoelectric functionality. The cover shows a top-view SEM image of vertically aligned ferroelectric polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) mesoscale rod arrays comprising β and γ phases, fabricated using a 200-nm diameter AAO as the porous template.

      The aggressive space environment requires high performance materials with excellent thermal, physical, proton, electron, and UV radiation resistance properties. Space solar cells must also maintain excellent transparency over long service lifetimes. Hyperbranched polycarbosiloxanes (HB-PCSOX) and polysiloxanes (HB-PSOX) with octafunctional polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) branchpoints are formulated with linear polysiloxanes to fabricate high-transmission and robust nanostructured POSS materials that could be tailored to give adhesives, or rigid or flexible coatings as desired. This study by Nita Xu et al. on page 3849 was performed at Michigan Molecular Institute and EMCORE Photovoltaics, and funded by the US Air Force.
