  1. Objectively Evaluating the Cathode Performance of Lithium-Oxygen Batteries

    Wang Zhang, Yue Shen, Dan Sun, Zhimei Huang and Yunhui Huang

    The cathode performance evaluation in lithium-oxygen batteries is much more complicated than that in lithium-ion batteries because of the complexity of the multi-phase electrochemical reaction. Conventional half-cell testing methods may give misleading conclusions. Modified half-cell testing methods are needed to get more instructive results for understanding the cathode chemistry and building high specific energy prototype cells.

  2. Enhanced Electrocatalysis for Energy-Efficient Hydrogen Production over CoP Catalyst with Nonelectroactive Zn as a Promoter

    Zn functions as an effective promoter for CoP-catalyzed hydrogen evolution reaction in both acidic and alkaline media. Its high activity toward urea oxidation reaction enables Zn0.08Co0.92P/titanium mesh as a durable bifunctional catalyst electrode for energy-efficient hydrogen production with a voltage of 1.38 V to drive 10 mA cm−2 in 1.0 m KOH in the presence of 0.5 m urea.

  3. Polymer/Small Molecule/Fullerene Based Ternary Solar Cells

    Ternary solar cells have made great progress in recent years. The state of polymer/small molecule/PCBM (fullerene acceptor) ternary systems is reviewed, with a focus on 1) the functions of small molecules, such as improving the light-harvesting ability, 2) the photo-physics process occurring in ternary systems, and 3) the influence of the small molecule on the crystallinity of the host polymer and the morphology of the active layer.

  4. High Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot Photovoltaics by Controlling Protic Solvents in Ligand Exchange

    Jung Hoon Song, Hyekyoung Choi, Yong-Hyun Kim and Sohee Jeong

    The control of short-chain alcohols in ligand exchange is proven to be very crucial for improving optoelectronic properties of PbS colloidal quantum dot (CQD) films. MeOH commonly used for ligand exchange of CQDs creates too many uncontrolled surface traps, but EtOH balances the ligand exchange and surface trap density, enabling a high certified power-conversion-efficiency of 10.4%.

  5. Boosting Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting by TENG-Charged Li-Ion Battery

    Tao Li, Ying Xu, Fei Xing, Xia Cao, Jie Bian, Ning Wang and Zhong Lin Wang

    A hybrid energy harvesting system for dynamical energy and solar radiation by coupling triboelectric nanogenerator and photochemical cell (PEC), in which the mechanical energy is used to boost the photon efficiency of PEC, is described. This strategy offers a simple but effective way for enhancing the total energy utilization.
