    Long-lived room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) with lifetime up to 0.748 s is realized in a pure organic single crystal. Compact face to face packing style in the crystal is found to favor long RTP lifetime and high photoluminescent intensity. This finding reveals that the molecular packing can affect optical properties significantly.

    Nitric oxide (NO) is able to lower intraocular pressure (IOP); however, its therapeutic effects on outflow physiology are location- and dose-dependent. An NO delivery platform that directly targets the resistance-generating region of the conventional outflow pathway and locally liberates a controlled dose of NO is reported. An increase in outflow facility (decrease in IOP) is demonstrated in a mouse model.

  4. In-Plane 2H-1T′ MoTe2 Homojunctions Synthesized by Flux-Controlled Phase Engineering

    In-plane 2H-1T′ MoTe2 homojunctions are synthesized from Mo nanoislands by flux-controlled phase engineering. Few-layer 2H MoTe2 is formed with high Te flux, while few-layer 1T′ MoTe2 is obtained with low Te flux. Kelvin probe force microscopy confirms that in-plane 2H-1T′ MoTe2 homojunctions synthesized with medium flux have an abrupt potential difference of ≈100 mV across the junctions.

  5. Reconfigurable Microscale Frameworks from Concatenated Helices with Controlled Chirality

    A method for the fabrication of microscale helices is reported and formation of reconfigurable frameworks from concatenated multiple helices with controlled chirality is demonstrated. Block angles, torsion angles, and lengths of each segment are reliably controlled using simple geometric design rules, enabling the formation of defined 3D shapes, thus opening new directions in responsive shape-programmable materials.
