- Biocompatible and Sustainable Optical Strain Sensors for Large-Area Applications

By a simple two-step procedure, large photonic strain sensors using a biocompatible cellulose derivative are fabricated. Transient color shifts of the sensors are explained by a theoretical model that consideres the deformation of cholesteric domains, which is in agreement with the experimental results. The extremely simple fabrication method is suitable for both miniaturization and large-sale manufacture, taking advantage of inexpensive and sustainable materials.

The interest for carbon nanotubes stands at the edge between fundamental physics in quantum confined systems and advanced technology. This review summarizes more than two decades of intense research on their ultrafast photophysical properties, the most advanced spectroscopic techniques used for their optical characterization, and possible applications in the fields of photonics, optoelectronics and photovoltaics.

A promising device structure for efficient and long-lived noninterlayer hybrid white organic light-emitting diodes (WOLEDs) is demonstrated. Two self-host blue emission materials (N,N′-di-1-naphthalenyl-N,N′-diphenyl-[1,1′:4′,1″:4″,1′″-quaterphenyl]-4,4′″-diamine) and (bis-[2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-pyridine]beryllium) are mixed to form a bipolar mixed fluorescent blue-emitting layer for exiton managing, reducing the efficiency roll-off, improving color stability, and extending the lifetime more than four times of the hybrid WOLEDs.
- Two-Photon Excitation Temperature Nanosensors Based on a Conjugated Fluorescent Polymer Doped with a Europium Probe

A two-photon excitable temperature nanosensor is presented. Nanodots prepared from a semiconducting polymer (SCP) and a temperature-sensitive luminescent Eu(III) complex are shown to be viable materials for sensing temperature under photoexcitation at >700 nm. The SCE acts as an antenna to capture two-photon energy which then is transferred to the emitting Eu(III) complex. Both ratiometric and lifetime fluorometry can be applied.
- Powerful and Tunable THz Emitters Based on the Fe/Pt Magnetic Heterostructure

Heterostructures composed of ferromagnetic metal and nonmagnetic metal with strong spin-orbit coupling are shown to be powerful broadband THz emitters, whose field strength can be maximized by optimizing the thickness of both ferromagnetic and nonmagnetic films, and the heterostructure layers. Furthermore, the THz spectrum and its intensity are tunable by the magnetic field orientation applied on the patterned magnetic Fe/Pt heterostructures.
