    Breathable and wearable energy storage is achieved based on an innovative design solution. Carbon nanotube/MnO2-decorated air-laid paper electrodes, with outstanding flexibility and good electrochemical performances, are prepared. They are then assembled into solid-state supercapacitors. By making through-holes on the supercapacitors, breathable and flexible supercapacitors are successfully fabricated.

    A UiO-66 core with various sizes acts as heterogeneous nucleation center and enables aniline polymerization under ambient conditions. The as-synthesized UiO-66@PAN possesses uniform size and excellent dispersibility in aqueous solution. UiO-66@PAN can be internalized by cancer cells via endocytosis, and indicates significant photothermal therapeutic effect in vitro, and can effectively inhibit the growth of colon cancers in vivo.

    A versatile metal nanowiring platform enables the fabrication of Ag nanowires (AgNW) at a desired position and orientation in an individually controlled manner. A printed, flexible AgNW has a diameter of 695 nm, a resistivity of 5.7 μΩ cm, and good thermal stability in air. Based on an Ag nanowiring platform, an all-NW transistors array, as well as various optoelectronic applications, are successfully demonstrated.

  4. Correlated Perovskites as a New Platform for Super-Broadband-Tunable Photonics

    The electron-doping-induced phase transition of a prototypical perovskite SmNiO3 induces a large and non-volatile optical-refractive-index change and has great potential for active-photonic-device applications. Strong optical modulation from the visible to the mid-infrared is demonstrated using thin-film SmNiO3. Modulation of a narrow band of light is demonstrated using plasmonic metasurfaces integrated with SmNiO3.

  5. Hybrid van der Waals p–n Heterojunctions based on SnO and 2D MoS2

    A p-type oxide/2D hybrid van der Waals p–n heterojunction is demonstrated for the first time between SnO (tin monoxide) (the p-type oxide) and 2D MoS2 (molybdenum disulfide), showing an ideality factor of 2 and rectification ratio up to 104. The reported heterojunction is gate-tunable with typical anti-ambipolar transfer characteristics. Surface potential mapping is performed and a current model for such a heterojunction is proposed.
