  1. Recent Progress in Well-Controlled Synthesis of Ceria-Based Nanocatalysts towards Enhanced Catalytic Performance

    Ke Wu, Ling-Dong Sun and Chun-Hua Yan

    Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201600501

    As the environmental pollution and energy shortage issues become more and more serious, ceria-based nanomaterials such as well−defined ceria nanocrystals, ceria−zirconia solid solutions, and noble metal−ceria nanocomposites have been the promising candidate catalysts to tackle these urgent problems in effective energy utlization, conversion, and storage as well as environmental remediation.

  2. Lithium Fluoride Based Electron Contacts for High Efficiency n-Type Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells

    James Bullock, Peiting Zheng, Quentin Jeangros, Mahmut Tosun, Mark Hettick, Carolin M. Sutter-Fella, Yimao Wan, Thomas Allen, Di Yan, Daniel Macdonald, Stefaan De Wolf, Aïcha Hessler-Wyser, Andres Cuevas and Ali Javey

    Exceptionally low contact resistivity is demonstrated on lightly doped (5 × 1015 cm−3) n-type silicon via a nanometer thin lithium fluoride (LiFx) interlayer. This advancement enables the fabrication of a first-of-its-kind n-type silicon solar cell with a LiFx/Al partial rear contact made to less than 1% of the cell's area. An efficiency of over 20% is achieved at the proof-of-concept stage.

    Water Splitting: Ni3FeN Nanoparticles Derived from Ultrathin NiFe-Layered Double Hydroxide Nanosheets: An Efficient Overall Water Splitting Electrocatalyst (Adv. Energy Mater. 10/2016)

    Xiaodan Jia, Yufei Zhao, Guangbo Chen, Lu Shang, Run Shi, Xiaofeng Kang, Geoffrey I. N. Waterhouse, Li-Zhu Wu, Chen-Ho Tung and Tierui Zhang

    Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201670063

    In article number 1502585, Tierui Zhang and co-workers report Ni3FeN nanoparticles with a particle size of 100 nm and a thickness of ≈9 nm synthesized by thermal ammonolysis of ultrathin NiFe-layered double hydroxide nanosheets. The Ni3FeN nanoparticles show extraordinarily high performance and stability for overall water splitting into hydrogen and oxygen with low overpotentials, which exhibited better activity than most other noble-metal-free electrocatalysts and commercial Pt/C.
