  1. Near-Infrared Light-Induced Photocurrent from a (NaYF4:Yb-Tm)/(Cu2O) Composite Thin Film

    Hong Jia, Shu Hong Zheng, Cheng Xu, Wei Bo Chen, Jue Chen Wang, Xiao Feng Liu and Jian Rong Qiu

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201401041

    Photocurrent generation driven by near-infrared (NIR) radiation is demonstrated in an electrodeposited (NaYF4:Yb-Tm)/(Cu2O) composite film. The mechanism, involving up-conversion of the NIR radiation into visible light in one layer of the film and then absorption and photoactive current generation in the other, will have implications for photovoltaic devices, where the utilization of sub-bandgap photons is highly desirable.

  2. Batteries: Nano-Copper-Assisted Immobilization of Sulfur in High-Surface-Area Mesoporous Carbon Cathodes for Room Temperature Na-S Batteries (Adv. Energy Mater. 12/2014)

    Shiyou Zheng, Pan Han, Zhuo Han, Peng Li, Huijuan Zhang and Junhe Yang

    Article first published online: 26 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201470065

    In article number 1400226, Shiyou Zheng, Junhe Yang, and co-workers report a novel, in situ, sulfur-reducing and intercalating graphite oxide strategy to fabricate a high S loading graphite-S composite cathode with superior electrochemical performance. The reduced graphite oxide can effectively stabilize the intercalated small molecule S2 through both physical confinement and chemical interaction.

  3. Solar Cells: N-Annulated Perylene as a Coplanar π-Linker Alternative to Benzene as a Low Energy-Gap, Metal-Free Dye in Sensitized Solar Cells (Adv. Energy Mater. 12/2014)

    Zhaoyang Yao, Cancan Yan, Min Zhang, Renzhi Li, Yanchun Cai and Peng Wang

    Article first published online: 26 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201470063

    In article number 1400244, Peng Wang and co-workers synthesize a metalfree perylene dye characterized by a bisarylamino-functionalized N-annulated perylene electronreleasing segment and a cyanoacrylic acid electron-withdrawing unit. This new dye exhibits an impressive power conversion efficiency of 8.8% at an irradiance of air mass 1.5 global (AM1.5G) sunlight.

    Energy Harvesting: A Novel Soft Metal-Polymer Composite for Multidirectional Pressure Energy Harvesting (Adv. Energy Mater. 12/2014)

    Majid Taghavi, Virgilio Mattoli, Ali Sadeghi, Barbara Mazzolai and Lucia Beccai

    Article first published online: 26 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201470060

    In article number 1400024, Majid Taghavi, Virgilio Mattoli, Lucia Beccai, and co-workers introduce a cost-effective 3D sponge composed of rubber and conductive wires, which can produce electric energy by periodic compression. Because it can be fabricated in a symmetric configuration, there is no specific surface and direction for the energy harvesting and pressure sensing purposes. The triboelectric effect causes the energy conversion and benefits from the gap trapped between polymer and wires.
