    Self-organized formation and self-propelled growth of complex hierarchical multicomponent metamaterials reveal tremendous potential. Recent progress with emphasis on key principles, features, and potential limitations of these materials is reviewed with a special stress placed on self-assembly driven by plasma, current in liquid, ultrasonic, and similar highly energetic effects, which enable self-directed formation of metamaterials with unique properties and structures.

  2. Influence of Radiation on the Properties and the Stability of Hybrid Perovskites

    T80 lifetimes of organic–inorganic perovskite solar cells are strongly reduced under illumination. Various degradation mechanisms are therefore discussed throughout the literature. Degradation by moisture or heat is well understood and mitigation possible. Photoinduced phase segregation and photoinduced dissociation of the organic cation, however, remain unsolved. Recent observations enlighten the underlying microscopic mechanisms and may pave the way for stable perovskites.

  3. Nanomorphology Effects in Semiconductors with Native Ferromagnetism: Hierarchical Europium (II) Oxide Tubes Prepared via a Topotactic Nanostructure Transition

    Bastian Trepka, Philipp Erler, Severin Selzer, Tom Kollek, Klaus Boldt, Mikhail Fonin, Ulrich Nowak, Daniel Wolf, Axel Lubk and Sebastian Polarz

    Access to nanostructures of the ferromagnetic semiconductor Eu(II)O is achieved by a two-step strategy. The synthesis of hierarchical nanotubes of an Eu2O3-organic nanohybrid is followed by conversion to EuO under full conservation of all structural features and shape. Herein, magnetic property correlations are revealed.

  4. Solution Adsorption Formation of a π-Conjugated Polymer/Graphene Composite for High-Performance Field-Effect Transistors

    Yun Liu, Wei Hao, Huiying Yao, Shuzhou Li, Yuchen Wu, Jia Zhu and Lei Jiang

    π-conjugated polymer/graphene composite arrays are constructed for enhancing the charge-carrier transport and thermal stability with a low polymer consumption. By employing an asymmetric wettability assembly system, the composite material is integrated into 1D arrays. Owing to the strong π–π interaction, charge transfer from conjugated polymers to graphene provides an efficient pathway for carrier transport.

  5. Multifunctional Cellular Materials Based on 2D Nanomaterials: Prospects and Challenges

    Recent advances in emerging 2D nanomaterial-based cellular materials (2D-CMs) open up new opportunities for the development of next-generation cellular solids. Herein, the current research status of 2D-CMs is presented and their future opportunities are highlighted. An in-depth discussion on the structure–property relationships of 2D-CMs is presented to highlight how remarkable functions can be achieved by engineering their cellular architecture.
