  1. Tailoring the Electrochemical and Mechanical Properties of PEDOT:PSS Films for Bioelectronics

    Mohammed ElMahmoudy, Sahika Inal, Anne Charrier, Ilke Uguz, George G. Malliaras and Sébastien Sanaur

    The optimized electrical, electrochemical impedance, swelling, and mechanical properties for poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS) based active layer is given, finding new applications in organic bioelectronics. Such optimal PEDOT:PSS layer used in organic electrochemical transistors shows stability in aqueous media over three weeks and promotes its use for “in vivo” neural applications.

  2. Engineered Peptide Repairs Defective Adhesive–Dentin Interface

    Qiang Ye, Paulette Spencer, Esra Yuca and Candan Tamerler

    Engineered peptide is utilized to induce remineralization of deficient dentin matrices. Raman spectral images are provided for the original adhesive/dentin interface, the interface with additional etching, and peptide-mediated remineralized interface. Distribution of mineral is observed throughout the interface after remineralization.

  3. A Newly Designed Dual-Functional Epoxy Monomer for Preparation of Fishbone-Shaped Heterochain Polymer with a High Damping Property at Low Temperature

    A new architecture, fishbone-shaped network, is rationally designed by a dual-functional epoxy monomer and polysiloxane. The fishbone-shaped network exhibits an unusual damping property at extreme low temperatures near the Tg of polysiloxane without sacrificing the high tan δ value of the epoxy resins. This discovery supplies a gap of the existing epoxy/polysiloxane materials without outstanding low-temperature damping properties.

  4. Electrospun Poly(l-Lactic Acid) Nanofibers for Nanogenerator and Diagnostic Sensor Applications

    Tiny devices with large sensitivity are always what we have been searching for as body sensors. Recently, scientists found that by using electrospinning method, biodegradable poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) nanofibers with large piezoelectricity can be produced and the fiber can generate around 20 mV signal under a tiny pressure. Additionally, the PLLA nanofiber can be used as a blood pressure sensor.

  5. Large-Scale Highly Aligned Nanowire Printing

    e-nanowire printing is a method to print highly aligned nanowires (NWs) on a large scale. This paper describes an operation mechanism of e-nanowire printing and reviews recent progress in various electronic applications with highly aligned NWs. Moreover, future research is suggested to exploit NWs in fabrication of high-density and high-tech nanoelectronics.
