  1. Probing the Mechanism of High Capacitance in 2D Titanium Carbide Using In Situ X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy

    Maria R. Lukatskaya, Seong-Min Bak, Xiqian Yu, Xiao-Qing Yang, Michel W. Barsoum and Yury Gogotsi

    Article first published online: 28 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500589

    Electrochemical in situ X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) of 2D titanium carbide MXene is used to probe mechanism of high capacitance of Ti3C2Tx MXene. Changes in the Ti oxidation state are detected during cycling confirming that most of the capacitance of Ti3C2Tx is due to changes in the Ti oxidation state, i.e., pseudocapacitance.

  2. From Commercial Sponge Toward 3D Graphene–Silicon Networks for Superior Lithium Storage

    3D graphene–silicon (G–Si) network is successfully achieved by employing commercial sponge as a template and graphene oxide as a building block, and subsequent magnesium thermal reduction. The unique textural features of the 3D G–Si network including porous structure, good flexibility, high electrical conductivity, and ultrathin hybrid walls lead to the superior electrochemical performances for lithium storage.

  3. Progress in Mechanistic Understanding and Characterization Techniques of Li-S Batteries

    Rui Xu, Jun Lu and Khalil Amine

    Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500408

    The development of high-performance and durable Li-S batteries relies significantly on the mechanistic understanding of the Li-S redox reaction and cell operational limitations due to the system complexity of Li-S cells. Recent gains in fundamental understanding of the Li-S redox reaction mechanism are discussed based on the application of advanced characterization techniques.

  4. Thermoelectric Properties of Band Structure Engineered Topological Insulator (Bi1−xSbx)2Te3 Nanowires

    Bacel Hamdou, Johannes Gooth, Tim Böhnert, August Dorn, Lewis Akinsinde, Eckhard Pippel, Robert Zierold and Kornelius Nielsch

    Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500280

    A vapor–liquid–solid method for the growth of single-crystalline (Bi1−xSbx)2Te3 nanowires with adjustable Bi–Sb mixing ratios is presented. Thermoelectric measurements on individual nanowires indicate a significant contribution from topological surface states to the total transport over the entire chemical composition range.

  5. Disorder-Induced Open-Circuit Voltage Losses in Organic Solar Cells During Photoinduced Burn-In

    Thomas Heumueller, Timothy M. Burke, William R. Mateker, Isaac T. Sachs-Quintana, Koen Vandewal, Christoph J. Brabec and Michael D. McGehee

    Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201500111

    Crystalline solar cell materials with high charge carrier density are more stable against disorder-induced open-circuit voltage (Voc) losses. Light-induced traps increase energetic disorder and cause Voc losses in amorphous materials that have low charge carrier densities. A significant change in recombination dynamics is not present after the formation of light-induced defects.
