    Flexible electrochemical capacitors have been considered as one of the most promising candidates for lightweight, flexible, and wearable electronic devices in our society. The growing field of flexible electrochemical capacitors is reviewed with a focus on electrode materials and device configurations. In addition, the most promising advances and future challenges are identified.

  2. High-Performance Flexible Nanostructured Silicon Solar Modules with Plasmonically Engineered Upconversion Medium

    Plasmonically enhanced upconverion luminescence is exploited to improve the collection efficiency of above-bandgap, long-wavelength photons in ultrathin nanostructured silicon solar microcells. A composite solar module integrated with plasmonic silver nanostructures and upconversion printing medium enables the performance enhancement of surface-embedded 8 μm thick nanostructured silicon microcells by synergistic effects of plasmonically enhanced spectral upconversion, waveguiding, and fluorescence of upconversion nanocrystals.

  3. Excellent Compatibility of Solvate Ionic Liquids with Sulfide Solid Electrolytes: Toward Favorable Ionic Contacts in Bulk-Type All-Solid-State Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Dae Yang Oh, Young Jin Nam, Kern Ho Park, Sung Hoo Jung, Sung-Ju Cho, Yun Kyeong Kim, Young-Gi Lee, Sang-Young Lee and Yoon Seok Jung

    Article first published online: 3 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500865

    The excellent stability of sulfide solid electrolyte with solvate ionic liquids Li(triethylene glycol dimethyl ether)bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (Li(G3)TFSI) and their application in high-performance all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries are successfully demonstrated. The addition of a small amount of Li(G3)TFSI gives an alternative ionic pathway through normally poor solid–solid contacts, leading to a dramatic increase in capacity of LiFePO4 composite electrode.

  4. Formation of Yolk-Shelled Ni–Co Mixed Oxide Nanoprisms with Enhanced Electrochemical Performance for Hybrid Supercapacitors and Lithium Ion Batteries

    Le Yu, Buyuan Guan, Wei Xiao and Xiong Wen (David) Lou

    Article first published online: 3 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500981

    Mesoporous yolk-shelled Ni–Co mixed oxide nanoprisms have been prepared via a facile precipitation of precursor particles combined with an annealing process. When employed as electrodes for hybrid supercapacitors and lithium ion batteries, these intriguing particles manifest remarkable electrochemical properties with high specific capacitance/capacity and excellent cycling stability.

  5. Recent Progress on Stability Enhancement for Cathode in Rechargeable Non-Aqueous Lithium-Oxygen Battery

    Zhi-wen Chang, Ji-jing Xu, Qing-chao Liu, Lin Li and Xin-bo Zhang

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500633

    Recent research on enhancing the mechanical and chemical stability of cathode for non-aqueous Li-O2 battery is summarized. In light of recent achievements, the structural integrity of constructed cathode can be well-maintained with a rational architectural design and the chemical stability can be effectively improved with the construction of a protection layer on the cathode.
