    A vertical point heterostructure (VPH) is constructed by sandwiching a two-dimensional (2D) MoS2 flake with two cross-stacked metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes. It can be used as a field effect transistor with high on/off ratio and a light detector with high spatial resolution. Moreover, the hybrid 1D–2D–1D VPHs open up new possibilities for nanoelectronics and nanooptoelectronics.

    Stimulus-responsive micro-supercapacitors (SR-MSCs) with ultrahigh volumetric energy density and reversible electrochromic effect have been successfully fabricated by employing vanadium pentoxide and electrochemical exfoliated graphene-based hybrid nanopaper and viologen as electrode and stimulus-responsive material, respectively. The fabricated high-performance SR-MSCs offer new opportunities for intuitively observing the working state of energy devices without the aid of extra equipment and techniques.

    A surface-modified Co3O4 ultrathin nanosheet (denoted as PCO) is reported via controllable phosphate ion functionalization for pseudocapacitors. An energy density of 71.6 Wh kg−1 (at 1500 W kg−1) is achieved by the PCO-based pseudocapacitor. The unique porous nanosheet morphology, high surface reactivity and fast electrode kinetics of PCO are found to be responsible for the enhanced pseudocapacitive performance.

  4. π-Conjugated Lewis Base: Efficient Trap-Passivation and Charge-Extraction for Hybrid Perovskite Solar Cells

    A π-conjugated Lewis base is introduced into perovskite solar cells, namely, indacenodithiophene end-capped with 1.1-dicyanomethylene-3-indanone (IDIC), as a multifunctional interlayer which combines efficient trap-passivation and electron-extraction. Perovskite solar cells with IDIC layers yield higher photovoltages and photocurrents, and 45% enhanced efficiency compared with control devices without IDIC.
