Ultra-lightweight and highly adaptive all-carbon elastic conductors are achieved by the controllable welding of nanotube joints in carbon nanotube foams with amorphous carbon. These conductors show high conductivity and excellent electrical reliability even under severe bending, stretching, and solution soaking, presenting a new type of nonmetal elastic conductor for many potential applications.

Miniaturized silicon-based chips incorporating customized physical and chemical anisotropies for molecular sensing are demonstrated. The microfabrication approach using photolithography dictates their physical anisotropy, while subsequent 2D or 3D chemical modifications extend their functionality by incorporating homogeneous or patterned chemical signatures. The high versatility of the anisotropic chips opens a vast number of applications for future life science applications.
- Silver Zeolite Composites-Based LEDs: A Novel Solid-State Lighting Approach

The development of innovative, efficient, and cost-effective lighting sources is nowadays of paramount importance. This study describes for the first time the assembly and characterization of silver-exchanged zeolite-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs). A basic, single-layer organic LED architecture is employed in which silver exchanged zeolites are incorporated. The electroluminescence colors are controlled by the silver concentration in the zeolites.

All-inorganic halide perovskite nanocrystals (IPNCs) (CsPbX3, X = Cl, Br, I) based vertical cavity surface emitting laser is realized for the first time. These laser devices operate at a very low threshold, such that quasi-steady-state pumping is feasible. The results highlight the emerging CsPbX3 IPNCs as practical laser media and represent a significant leap toward practically desirable laser devices.
- Rapid Pseudocapacitive Sodium-Ion Response Induced by 2D Ultrathin Tin Monoxide Nanoarrays
Minghua Chen, Dongliang Chao, Jilei Liu, Jiaxu Yan, Bowei Zhang, Yizhong Huang, Jianyi Lin and Ze Xiang Shen
Version of Record online: 20 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201606232
Flexible, binder-free electrode composed of 2D ultrathin (≈2.5 nm) SnO nanoflake arrays on graphene foam/carbon nanotubes foam is fabricated. Density functional theory calculation, quantitative capacitive analysis, and ex situ Raman and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy verify the role of pseudocapacitive contribution to high-rate Na+ storage and long-term cycle life of sodium ion battery.
