C. S. Han and co-workers report on page 6394 the clean, fast, and inexpensive direct transfer of large-area monolayer CVD graphene from Cu foil to various substrates such as PET, PDMS, and glass using a mechano-electro-thermal (MET) process. This process leads to ultraconformal contact between the graphene and the target substrate, which increases the higher adhesion energy of the graphene to the substrate over Cu foil. This transferred graphene presents both excellent quality (with no residues or defects) and remarkable mechanical and electrical stability.

M. Ullah, E. B. Namdas, and co-workers present on page 6410 the first all-solution-processed hybrid light-emitting transistors, and demonstrate the effectiveness of their operation with three organic emissive materials. This approach involves the fabrication of a bilayer device structure using a solution of organic emissive material, and a sol–gel of zinc tin oxide. The use of nonplanar contacts is also demonstrated in this study as playing a crucial role in the enhanced optoelectronics characteristics.

The atomic layer deposition technique is successfully applied to synthesize lithium iron phosphate using rationally designed surface reactions, as demonstrated for the first time by X. Sun and co-workers on page 6472. The lithium iron phosphate exhibits high power density, excellent rate capability, and ultra-long lifetime, showing great potential in vehicular lithium batteries and 3D all-solid-state microbatteries.

A flexible uniform responsive microstructure (μFUR) array is reported by E. N. Wang and co-workers, on page 6442. The μFUR has continuous and extreme tilt angles via the application of a magnetic field and is used to dynamically manipulate liquid spreading directionality, control fluid drag, and tune optical transmittance over a large range.
