    Rechargeable metal–air batteries such as lithium–oxygen and sodium–oxygen offer a new and promising opportunity for low-cost, high-energy-density, and relatively efficient electrochemical systems. An in-depth understanding of the differences and similarities between Li–O2 and Na–O2 batteries in terms of thermodynamics and a structural viewpoint is therefore very meaningful to promote the development of advanced metal–oxygen batteries.

    Metallic liquids are important substances in scientific research and industrial applications. Recent progress in several fundamental aspects in metallic liquids, mainly focusing on the structural evolution and relations with thermophysical properties, is reviewed. This provides more in-depth understanding of the structure–property relationships of metallic liquids and promotes the design of new metallic materials with superior properties.

    High-quality single-electron transistors (SETs) are fabricated by a newly developed, novel bottom-up approach. The approach relies on the self-assembly of Au nanoparticles, forming the SETs, and Au nanorods, serving as extended electric leads. The self-assembly is driven by the electrostatic interaction between the tailor-made molecular monolayers on the constituents of the heterogeneous assembly.

  4. Temporal and Remote Tuning of Piezophotonic-Effect-Induced Luminescence and Color Gamut via Modulating Magnetic Field

    Man-Chung Wong, Li Chen, Gongxun Bai, Long-Biao Huang and Jianhua Hao

    Version of Record online: 18 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201701945

    Temporal tuning of the light-emitting wavelength and color by an in situ and reversible method is presented, which differs greatly from conventional approaches. Red–green–blue and tunable white-light are demonstrated by modulating the frequency of magnetic excitation. A new understanding of the luminescence mechanism is thus determined. The findings will offer opportunities in magnetic–optical sensing, piezophotonics, energy harvesting, novel light sources, and displays.

  5. Characterization of Edge Contact: Atomically Resolved Semiconductor–Metal Lateral Boundary in MoS2

    Hyeokshin Kwon, Kiyoung Lee, Jinseong Heo, Youngtek Oh, Hyangsook Lee, Samudrala Appalakondaiah, Wonhee Ko, Hyo Won Kim, Jin-Wook Jung, Hwansoo Suh, Hongki Min, Insu Jeon, Euyheon Hwang and Sungwoo Hwang

    The edge contact and the lateral boundary between a semiconducting layer and a metalized interfacial layer are investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy and scanning transmission electron microscopy techniques. The electronic properties and the energy band profile across the boundary are shown. A new device scheme based on the low-resistance edge contact is thus provided.
