    Well-organized donor/acceptor bulk-heterojunction domains are spontaneously formed in a binary blend film of a π-extended benzodithiophene-diketopyrrolopyrrole-based oligomer and a fullerene derivative. A power conversion efficiency as high as 5.9% is achieved for solution-processed small-molecule organic solar cells based on this nanostructured photoactive blend layer.

  2. A Nanosheets-on-Channel Architecture Constructed from MoS2 and CMK-3 for High-Capacity and Long-Cycle-Life Lithium Storage

    A unique hybrid nanostructure of ultrathin MoS2 nanosheets on CMK-3 is designed and fabricated as an anode material for lithium-ion batteries. With advantages of the nanosheets-on-channel architecture, the MoS2@CMK-3 electrode is able to deliver a high discharge capacity of 934 mAh g−1 even after 150 cycles at a current density of 400 mA g−1.

  3. High Activity of Nanoporous-Sm0.2Ce0.8O2-δ@430L Composites for Hydrogen Electro-Oxidation in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    Yucun Zhou, Ting Luo, Xianlong Du, Jianqiang Wang, Wei Yang, Chunwen Sun, Changrong Xia, Shaorong Wang and Zhongliang Zhan

    Sm0.2Ce0.8O2-δ nanoparticles imbedded in macroporous 430L stainless steel demonstrate excellent catalytic activity for hydrogen electro-oxidation. This is enabled by superior redox properties of ceria catalysts and high conductivities of the supporting 430L scaffolds. Thin yttria-stabilized zirconia electrolyte fuel cells produce promising power densities of 0.94 W cm−2 at 800 °C and 0.55 W cm−2 at 700 °C.

  4. The Crucial Influence of Fullerene Phases on Photogeneration in Organic Bulk Heterojunction Solar Cells

    Andreas Zusan, Koen Vandewal, Benedikt Allendorf, Nis Hauke Hansen, Jens Pflaum, Alberto Salleo, Vladimir Dyakonov and Carsten Deibel

    Increasing the fullerene loading significantly lowers the field dependence of free charge carrier generation of bulk heterojunction solar cells based on the polymer pBTTT-C16. The charge transfer splitting is driven by the presence of pure fullerene domains that are identified as the main prerequisite for a highly efficient, field-independent charge carrier photogeneration.

  5. Layered P2/O3 Intergrowth Cathode: Toward High Power Na-Ion Batteries

    Eungje Lee, Jun Lu, Yang Ren, Xiangyi Luo, Xiaoyi Zhang, Jianguo Wen, Dean Miller, Aaron DeWahl, Stephen Hackney, Baris Key, Donghan Kim, Michael D. Slater and Christopher S. Johnson

    Novel layered P2/O3 intergrowth Na1-xLix­Ni0.5Mn0.5O2 cathodes show high-rate performance for sodium-ion batteries. The good electrochemical properties are attributed to the synergistic effect of an intergrowth structure that results from the direct incorporation of Li in the matrix. This finding highlights the importance of multiphase intergrowths with orientation relationships that can attain performance for future optimized sodium-ion batteries.
