    Elucidating the temperatures of particles trapped in laser tweezers is of great importance and impacts studies and applications in various areas of science and engineering. A unique method is demonstrated for extracting the local temperature of trapped ion-implanted silicon nanowires undergoing hot Brownian motion in superheated water, and their efficacy as agents for photothermal cancer therapy is investigated.

    Quantum Dots: Graphene Quantum Dot-Protected Cadmium Selenide Quantum Dot-Sensitized Photoanode for Efficient Photoelectrochemical Cells with Enhanced Stability and Performance (Advanced Optical Materials 7/2015) (page 978)

    Ki-Yong Yoon, Hyo-Jin Ahn, Myung-Jun Kwak, Pradheep Thiyagarajan and Ji-Hyun Jang

    Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201570044

    Cadmium selenide quantum dots (CdSe QDs) have excellent properties such as a bandgap position and visible light absorption in the region required for photoelectrochemical (PEC) hydrogen generation systems. However, the slow reaction rate of holes results in corrosion of the CdSe due to hole accumulation. J.-H. Jang and co-workers describe on page 907 how graphene quantum dots can provide inexpensive and efficient hole transfer/extraction pathways to improve the stability of the CdSe-sensitized PEC systems.

    Color Routers: Asymmetric Three-Way Plasmonic Color Routers (Advanced Optical Materials 7/2015) (page 882)

    Koichiro Saito and Tetsu Tatsuma

    Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201570041

    On page 883, K. Saito and T. Tatsuma demonstrate asymmetric plasmonic color routers consisting of thin titania films with adsorbed silver nanocubes. For the front incidence (lower picture), blue light is scattered and yellow light is reflected at the film, and red light is transmitted. For the back incidence (upper picture), yellow light is scattered and blue light is reflected at the film, and red light is transmitted.

    SERS: Ultrathin Plasmene Nanosheets as Soft and Surface-Attachable SERS Substrates with High Signal Uniformity (Advanced Optical Materials 7/2015) (page 918)

    Yi Chen, Kae Jye Si, Debabrata Sikdar, Yue Tang, Malin Premaratne and Wenlong Cheng

    Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201570042

    Plasmene nanosheets can serve as a new class of surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate. Being ultrathin, soft, elastic, and free-standing in nature, these plasmonic nanosheets can enable direct conformal contact with topologically complex real-world surfaces (eg., coins and banknotes) for chemical identification. On page 919, W. L. Cheng and co-workers show how this soft SERS substrate also offers high spatial signal uniformity and customizability of hotspots.
