- Engineering the Magnetic Dipolar Interactions in 3D Binary Supracrystals Via Mesoscale Alloying
Zhijie Yang, Jingjing Wei, Pierre Bonville and Marie-Paule Pileni
Article first published online: 3 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201501499
3D magnetic binary supracrystals are fabricated, and the magnetic dipolar interactions are found to be controllable by the binary structure and the type of small nanoparticles. The presence of small ferromagnetic nanoparticles can lead to a weaker dipolar interaction than the insertion of nonmagnetic ones.

A strategy by encapsulating organic dyes into the pores of a luminescent metal-organic framework is developed to achieve white-light-emitting phosphor. The resulting composite ZJU-28⊃DSM/AF (0.02 wt% DSM, 0.06 wt% AF) exhibits a broadband white emission with ideal CIE coordinates of (0.34, 0.32), high CRI value of 91, and moderate CCT value of 5327 K.

Incorporation of C in the lattice of silver is produced by electrocharging assisted bulk processing to create a synthetic alloy called silver covetic. In some regions the carbon forms layers of graphene intercalated between the atomic planes of silver forming a 3D nanoepitaxial structure. Carbon and silver atoms bond at carbon vacancies and edges of graphene-like sheets or ribbons.
- Alcohol as a Processing Solvent of Polymeric Semiconductors to Fabricate Environmentally Benign and High Performance Polymer Field Effect Transistors
Kwang Hee Cheon, Hyungju Ahn, Jangwhan Cho, Hui-Jun Yun, Byung Tack Lim, Dong Jin Yun, Han-Koo Lee, Soon-Ki Kwon, Yun-Hi Kim and Dae Sung Chung
Article first published online: 2 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201500877
Colloidal solutions of conjugated semiconducting polymer are fabricated using a simple dispersion method of conjugated random copolymer in low-molecular-weight alcohols, including ethanol, propanol, and butanol. From such environmentally benign processes, for the first time, high-mobility (>1 cm2 V−1 s−1) polymer field effect transistors are demonstrated.
- Fragile-to-Strong Crossover in Supercooled Liquid Ag-In-Sb-Te Studied by Ultrafast Calorimetry
Jiri Orava, Daniel W. Hewak and A. Lindsay Greer
Article first published online: 2 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201501607
The temperature-dependent viscosity inferred for liquid Ag-In-Sb-Te (AIST) presents evidence for a fragile-to-strong crossover on cooling the liquid. Such a crossover is relevant for the application of AIST and other chalcogenides, helping to understand the distinction between nucleation- and growth-dominated crystallization, and guiding materials design to combine fast switching and non-volatility for application in phase-change memory and neuromorphic computing.
