    Pursuing Polymer Dielectric Interfacial Effect in Organic Transistors for Photosensing Performance Optimization

    Xiaohan Wu, Yingli Chu, Rui Liu, Howard E. Katz and Jia Huang

    Version of Record online: 16 OCT 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700442

    The significant and intricate semiconductor/dielectric interfacial effect in flexbile organic transistors is systematically investigated, giving a mechanism that mathematically explains how the photosensitive device characteristics are determined by parameters including polar group of the polymer dielectrics and side chain of the organic semiconductors. By utilizing the mechanism, performance of the organic electronics can be optimized, and photostimulated synapse emulators are obtained.

    Earth-Abundant Tin Sulfide-Based Photocathodes for Solar Hydrogen Production

    Wei Cheng, Nirala Singh, Will Elliott, Joun Lee, Alan Rassoolkhani, Xuejun Jin, Eric W. McFarland and Syed Mubeen

    Version of Record online: 16 OCT 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700362

    A novel strategy is reported to improve performance and stability of tin monosulfide (SnS) nanoplatelet thin films for H2 production in acidic media without any use of sacrificial reagent. This is achieved by fabricating p-SnS/n-CdS/TiO2 type II heterojunction photocathodes which generate a photovoltage of 300 mV and a hydrogen production photocurrent density of 2.4 mA cm−2 under visible-light illumination.

    Electroionic Antagonistic Muscles Based on Nitrogen-Doped Carbons Derived from Poly(Triazine-Triptycene)

    Sandipan Roy, Jaehwan Kim, Moumita Kotal, Kwang Jin Kim and Il-Kwon Oh

    Version of Record online: 11 OCT 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700410

    Ultrasensitive bioinspired ionic actuators are newly developed using hierarchically porous nitrogen-doped carbon electrodes derived from poly(triazine-triptycene) organic framework. Owing to remarkable electro-chemomechanical properties of the electrodes such as high specific capacitance and electrical conductivity, and large surface area with hierarchical porosity, the bioinspired actuators exhibit large bending actuation and long-term durability under ultralow input voltages.

    Remarkable Enhancement of the Hole Mobility in Several Organic Small-Molecules, Polymers, and Small-Molecule:Polymer Blend Transistors by Simple Admixing of the Lewis Acid p-Dopant B(C6F5)3

    Admixing the Lewis acid B(C6F5)3 with various organic conjugated small-molecules, polymers, and small-molecule:polymer blends leads to a remarkable increase in their field-effect hole mobility. In the case of small-molecule:polymer blends, the effect is shown to be due to the synergistic processes of p-doping and dopant-induced long-range crystallinity in the composite layer yielding transistor with hole mobility of up to 11 cm2 V−1 s−1.
