    A van der Waals transition metal oxide, α-MoO3, is demonstrated as a new natural hyperbolic material, which can sustain low-loss phonon polaritons (PhPs) with ultrahigh electromagnetic confinements in the mid-infrared region. The α-MoO3 PhPs can be tailored by either altering the thicknesses of the flake or metal ion intercalations.

    Inorganic solid-state electrolytes (SSEs) offer numerous advantages for the development of next-generation batteries. The most promising advantages are the safety that benefits from the nonflammable nature of SSEs and the possibility of using a Li-metal anode, which has highest capacity, lowest anodic potential, and is indispensable to the future success of high-energy-density Li–S batteries and Li–O2 battery systems.

  3. Biocompatible Semiconductor Quantum Dots as Cancer Imaging Agents

    Near-infrared quantum dots have the potential to serve as superior contrast agents for intraoperative optical imaging during tumor resection and lymph node biopsy compared with current dyes approved by the Food and Drug Administration. By modulating the size, composition, and surface functionalization, quantum dots can emit at wavelengths with superior tissue penetration and preferentially target a tumor or lymph nodes to improve imaging contrast.

  4. Bioinspired Wood Nanotechnology for Functional Materials

    Lars A. Berglund and Ingo Burgert

    Wood, as a biomaterial, can be used as a large-scale bioscaffold and template for functionalization at multiple scales in a top-down approach. This emerging research field is reviewed by discussing nanotechnological approaches for the development of wood–polymer composites and wood–mineral hybrids, as well as wood-based devices for advanced property profiles and new functions.

  5. Characterization and Manipulation of Spin Orbit Torque in Magnetic Heterostructures

    Spin orbit torque (SOT) is emerging as an efficient magnetic-state control strategy for widespread modern memory and logic applications that are nonvolatile, scalable, and ultrafast. Recent developments on the characterization and manipulation of SOT in magnetic heterostructures are described, which lay the foundation for new-generation spintronic devices.
