- A High Areal Capacity Flexible Lithium-Ion Battery with a Strain-Compliant Design
Abhinav M. Gaikwad, Brian V. Khau, Greg Davies, Benjamin Hertzberg, Daniel A. Steingart and Ana Claudia Arias
Article first published online: 23 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201401389
Flexible lithium-ion batteries with a high areal capacity of ≈1 mAh cm-2 and an open-circuit potential of 2.6 V are demonstrated. Due to the reinforced electrode design, the batteries are able to maintain their capacity, even after repeated flexing up to a bend radius of 10 mm.

A series of triphenylamine-based small molecular hole transport materials (HTMs) are systematically investigated in solid-state dye-sensitized solar cell (ssDSCs). Among these HTMs, X3- and X35-based devices exhibit desirable power conversion efficiencies of 5.8% and 5.5%, which are better than those for the device using the state-of-the-art Spiro-OMeTAD (5.4%). This makes these new HTMs promising for high-efficiency ssDSCs or perovskite solar cells.
- Optimization of Carbon- and Binder-Free Au Nanoparticle-Coated Ni Nanowire Electrodes for Lithium-Oxygen Batteries

Au nanoparticle-coated Ni nanowire substrates are used as the electrode (Au/Ni electrode) for Li-O2 batteries. This optimized Au/Ni electrode demonstrates improved capacity of ≈600 mAh g−1Au. More importantly, it exhibits improved cyclability over 200 cycles at full discharge and charge conditions between 2.3 and 4.3 V.
- Electrochemical Design of Nanostructured ZnO Charge Carrier Layers for Efficient Solid-State Perovskite-Sensitized Solar Cells
Jie Zhang, Philippe Barboux and Thierry Pauporté
Article first published online: 22 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aenm.201400932
Efficient perovskite-sensitized solar cells are prepared based on designed electrodeposited zinc oxide scaffold layers. They combine Cl-doped vertically oriented nanowire arrays and an intermediate thin overlayer of low n-type doped ZnO. Very large photocurrents and open-circuit voltages are achieved and a power conversion efficiency as high as 10.28% is demonstrated.
- Direct Observation of Ordered Oxygen Defects on the Atomic Scale in Li2O2 for Li-O2 Batteries

The structure of the discharge product, Li2O2, in lithium-oxygen batteries is revealed directly on the atomic scale. A unique stage ordering that the peroxide vacancy occupies preferentially in every other layer along the c-axis of Li2O2 is observed. This finding provides new insight into the relationship between the structure of Li2O2 and the discharge/charge behavior of Li-O2 batteries.
