    An efficient oxygen evolution reaction electrocatalyst with the lowest overpotential in carbon-based system comparable to established metal/metal oxide systems (290 mV at 10 mA cm−2, Tafel slope 120 mV dec−1) and long-term durability for 18 h (91.2% retention) is successfully realized from S-modified graphitic carbon nitride nanostructures. This electrocatalyst is achieved from melamine nanogeodes by in situ sulfur modification at high temperature.

    A 2D WSe2 and a semiconductor industry compatible charge-trap stack are combined to produce exceptional memory. By carefully designing the energy-band structure, the memory write time is as fast as 1 µs and an electron window of over 20 V with charge-trap selectivity of about 13 is achieved. These are state-of-the-art values never previously reported in flash memory based on atomic crystals.

    An approach to obtain irregular nanocrystalline zinc particles for printable bioresorbable electronics is presented. Zn microparticles are ball milled with polyvinylpyrrolidone as a process control agent, resulting Zn nanoparticles, which can be prepared into inks that can be printed and sintered to yield conductive patterns.

  5. Controlled Segmentation of Metal Nanowire Array by Block Copolymer Lithography and Reversible Ion Loading

    Area-selective chemical segmentation of metallic nanowire arrays is prepared from block copolymer (BCP) lithography. To induce desired local chemical segmentation, reversible metal ion loading is exploited, where metal ion complexation in BCP nanodomains can be unloaded and replaced by another type of metal ion complex. The position and shape of reversible metal ion complexation can be exactly controlled by overlaid patterned masks.
