    On page 4039, a high performance SiNWs array/TiO2/rGO Schottky sensor is fabricated for the sensitive and selective detection of trace nitro-explosives vapors by Z. Yang, X. C. Dou, and co-workers, who adopt the interface modulation strategy to boost the sensing performance. The Schottky barrier height modulation with the insertion of TiO2, SiNWs array structure enhanced diffusion and TiO2 nanoparticles enhanced adsorption coordinately account for the good sensing performance.

    Porous chemically loaded voxels can be dispensed in arrays on both rigid and flexible substrates to enable dynamic patterns and provide proof-of-concept for a chemical display. Simulations and experiments which are used to design the animation of a running man are described by D. H. Gracias and team on page 3998. Graphics: Jinpyo Hong and Martin Rietveld.

    On page 3991 C. E. Park, S.-K. Kwon, Y.-H. Kim, and co-workers report recently advanced donor polymers with a novel acceptor unit, dithieno[3,2-b:2′,3′-d]phosphole oxide (DTP) for high-performance solar cells. Surprisingly, the introduction of this DTP unit in the polymer chains shows superior charge transfer properties with highly polarizable characteristics, and a power conversion efficiency of 7.08% is achieved.
