Flexible, highly transparent, and wide spectral-response-range (ultraviolet to visible) ZnO–CdO nanofiber array-based photodetectors are fabricated via a modified electrospun method by T. Y. Zhai and co-workers on page 5885. Simply mixing the precursors of the target active materials for electrospinng is proven to be a facile way to widen the spectral response of the final product, and is expected to be beneficial for future flexible optoelectronics.

Nucleus-targeting gold nanoclusters (TAT peptide-Au NCs) can act as intrinsic fluorescence probe for bioimaging, as shown by K. C. Hwang and co-workers on page 5934. The nanoclusters also sensitize formation of singlet oxygen upon NIR light activation, to exert effective photodynamic therapeutic effects in killing cancer cells via subsequent DNA damage inside the nucleus, without using any additional photosensitizers.

Large area semitransparent thin films with highly ordered microporous structures are formed from a commercial conjugated polymer by the use of the breath figure technique, as shown by T. A. Venkatesh, M. Cotlet, and co-workers on page 5902. In this self-assembly method, humid air flow encounters the polymer solution and the condensation of water droplets onto hexagonal arrays acts as a template for the film.
