- Gate-Controlled Energy Barrier at a Graphene/Molecular Semiconductor Junction
Subir Parui, Luca Pietrobon, David Ciudad, Saül Vélez, Xiangnan Sun, Fèlix Casanova, Pablo Stoliar and Luis E. Hueso
Article first published online: 31 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201403407
Graphene is an ideal candidate for the source electrode in a vertical organic field effect transistor as it has low density of states near the Dirac point and easy gate tunability of the Fermi-level. By varying the gate electric field, the energy-barrier is modulated at a graphene/molecular-semiconductor (fullerene) junction, thus opening a promising route toward molecular-semiconductor based devices.
- Dynamic Control of Full-Colored Emission and Quenching of Photoresponsive Conjugated Polymers by Photostimuli

A series of photoresponsive and full-colored fluorescent conjugated polymers are synthesized by combining phenylene- and thienylene-based main chains with photochromic dithienylethene side chains. In chloroform solution, nanosphere solution, and solid film, the full-colored fluorescence is reversibly switchable between emission and quenching through photoisomerization of dithienylethene side chains regardless of the fluorescent colors and the polymer chain aggregation.
- Oxygen Vacancy Creation, Drift, and Aggregation in TiO2-Based Resistive Switches at Low Temperature and Voltage
Jonghan Kwon, Abhishek A. Sharma, James A. Bain, Yoosuf N. Picard and Marek Skowronski
Article first published online: 30 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201500444
Structural changes induced by in situ biasing of TiN/single-crystal rutile TiO2/Pt resistive switching structures are monitored by TEM. Three elementary processes essential for resistive switching are documented: i) creation of oxygen vacancies by electrochemical reactions at low temperatures, ii) their drift in the electric field, and iii) their coalescence into (and dissociation from) planar faults.
- In-Depth Studies on Rapid Photochemical Activation of Various Sol–Gel Metal Oxide Films for Flexible Transparent Electronics
Sungjun Park, Kwang-Ho Kim, Jeong-Wan Jo, Sujin Sung, Kyung-Tae Kim, Won-June Lee, Jaekyun Kim, Hyun Jae Kim, Gi-Ra Yi, Yong-Hoon Kim, Myung-Han Yoon and Sung Kyu Park
Article first published online: 30 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201500545
The general physicochemical mechanisms underlying photoactivated sol–gel reactions are described, with comprehensive chemical and structural analysis inducing rapid (<5 min) fabrication of various metal oxide films at low temperatures (<150 °C), and all-solution processed high-performance electronic devices and circuitry on ultrathin polymeric substrates is demonstrated. This will open new possibilities to prepare future electronic materials in a fast, scalable, and economic manner.
- Flexible and Controllable Piezo-Phototronic Pressure Mapping Sensor Matrix by ZnO NW/p-Polymer LED Array
Rongrong Bao, Chunfeng Wang, Lin Dong, Ruomeng Yu, Kun Zhao, Zhong Lin Wang and Caofeng Pan
Article first published online: 30 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201500801
The piezo-phototronic effect is applied to prepare a flexible LED array composed of PEDOT:PSS and patterned ZnO NWs for mapping of spatial pressure distributions. The spatial resolution achieved is as high as 7 μm by fabricating ZnO nanowires on flexible substrates. By controlling the growth conditions of the ZnO nanowire array, a wide range of pressure measurements from 40 to 100 MPa are derived under different ZnO morphologies.
