The back cover shows self-assembled, Er-doped, infrared-emitting, flower-like ZnO-structures which were synthesized by a hydrothermal process at low temperature. Er was incorporated into the wurtzite-structure ZnO-lattice and displayed photoluminescence at 1.54 μm, a wavelength relevant for optoelectronic applications (pp. 1190–1195). The simplicity of the fabrication process promises a route to fast and large scale production at low cost, thereby encouraging industrial application. The corresponding author Lih J. Chen is Distinguished Chair Professor at the National Tsing Hua University. His main research interests lie with the synthesis and applications of low-dimensional nanostructured materials.
