  1. Observation of Electrochemically Driven Elemental Segregation in a Si Alloy Thin-Film Anode and its Effects on Cyclic Stability for Li-Ion Batteries

    Repetition of electrochemically driven in-/out-flux of lithium ions separates Ti and Fe from Si in a (Ti, Fe)-alloyed Si anode, rendering ripple-like pattern of (Ti, Fe) segregation regions. The ripple pattern, acting as “self-formed” buffer, and subsequent morphology evolution enable an excellent cyclic stability, stable operation for more than 500 cycles at a capacity of 1400 mAh g–1.

  2. High Throughput Discovery of Solar Fuels Photoanodes in the CuO–V2O5 System

    Through integration of high throughput experimental and theoretical techniques, CuO-V2O5 is established as the most prominent composition system for oxygen evolution reaction photoelectrocatalysts. Four photoelectrocatalyst phases are discovered and structure–property relationships are developed using a strategic combination of combinatorial synthesis, high throughput screening, and detailed electronic structure calculations.

  3. Understanding the External Quantum Efficiency of Organic Homo-Tandem Solar Cells Utilizing a Three-Terminal Device Architecture

    Daniel Bahro, Manuel Koppitz, Adrian Mertens, Konstantin Glaser, Jan Mescher and Alexander Colsmann

    A three-terminal tandem solar cell architecture enables detailed studies of the external quantum efficiencies (EQEs) of organic homo-tandem solar cells. Due to optoelectronic equality, all results can be transferred to conventional two-terminal tandem cells including a detailed study of subcell saturation by monochromatic bias light and bias voltage needed for accurate EQE measurements.

  4. Fe-Based Tunnel-Type Na0.61[Mn0.27Fe0.34Ti0.39]O2 Designed by a New Strategy as a Cathode Material for Sodium-Ion Batteries

    Shuyin Xu, Yuesheng Wang, Liubin Ben, Yingchun Lyu, Ningning Song, Zhenzhong Yang, Yunming Li, Linqin Mu, Hai-Tao Yang, Lin Gu, Yong-Sheng Hu, Hong Li, Zhao-Hua Cheng, Liquan Chen and Xuejie Huang

    A new strategy through partially/fully substituting the redox couple of existing negative electrodes in their reduced forms is proposed to design the corresponding new positive electrode materials. The power of this strategy is demonstrated through the successful design of new tunnel-type positive electrode materials of Na0.61[Mn0.61-xFexTi0.39]O2, exhibiting a usable capacity of ≈90 mAh g−1 and a high storage voltage of 3.56 V.

    The design and performance of solar cells based on InP grown by the nonepitaxial thin-film vapor–liquid–solid growth technique is investigated. The cell structure consists of a Mo back contact, p-InP absorber layer, n-TiO2 electron selective contact, and indium tin oxide transparent top electrode. The highest measured open circuit voltage (VOC) under 1 sun is 692 mV, which approaches the optically implied VOC of ≈795 mV extracted from the luminescence yield of p-InP.
