- Structural Engineering of Nano-Grain Boundaries for Low-Voltage UV-Photodetectors with Gigantic Photo- to Dark-Current Ratios
Noushin Nasiri, Renheng Bo, Hongjun Chen, Thomas P. White, Lan Fu and Antonio Tricoli
Version of Record online: 29 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201600273
The effect of the grain boundary morphology on the optical and photodetection mechanism of ultraporous ZnO nanoparticle networks UV-photodetectors is investigated. Optimal devices feature an ultralow dark current of 22 pA and a high photocurrent of 205 μA at a low light density of 86 μW cm−2 and a bias of 1 V, and a gigantic photo- to dark-current ratio of 9.3 × 106.
- High-Performance Light-Emitting Memories: Multifunctional Devices for Unveiling Information by Optical and Electrical Detection

A novel bistable light-emitting memory device is demonstrated not only to read the encoded signal electrically, but to enable signal communication by optical detection; this facilitates the capability for a parallel reading process and raises the transmission rate of the signal dramatically. The ON/OFF ratio can be extremely large, based on optical detection with low applied bias.

Optically activated silk bio-ink is used to realize a physically transient distributed feedback laser. By water-washing and recoating, a fresh single-use laser can be easily obtained. Along with reliable lasing, a chemosensing application to detect a toxic acid vapor is presented.
- Bottom-Up Synthesis of MeSx Nanodots for Optoelectronic Device Applications
Quyet Van Le, Thang Phan Nguyen, Minjoon Park, Woonbae Sohn, Ho Won Jang and Soo Young Kim
Version of Record online: 29 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201600333
WSx and MoSx nanodots are synthesized from (NH4)2WS4 and (NH4)2MoS4 precursors using a solvothermal method, and applied to organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs) and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) as hole injection layers (HILs). The stabilities of the OPV and OLEDs in air can be prolonged by using ultraviolet/ozone-treated WSx or MoSx nanodots as HILs.
- Efficient Radiative Pumping of Polaritons in a Strongly Coupled Microcavity by a Fluorescent Molecular Dye

The energetic distribution of polariton states is explored in a series of strongly coupled microcavities containing the fluorescent molecular dye BODIPY-Br. It is shown that distribution of polariton states along the lower polariton branch is dependent on the distribution of states within the weakly coupled reservoir, and is primarily populated by direct radiative pumping from excimer-like states.
