  1. “Smart” Surface Capsules for Delivery Devices

    Ekaterina V. Skorb and Helmuth Möhwald

    Article first published online: 29 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400237

    This review describes emerging trends and future challenges for designing next generation of responsive “smart” surface capsules. Surface capsules can be adapted for biomedical applications, lab-on-chip, organ-on-chip, attractive self-healing anticorrosion and antifouling prospects. Understanding the underlying mechanisms of capsule opening by different stimuli is essential for developing new methods of encapsulation, release, and targeting.

  2. Trapping Light with a Nanostructured CeOx/Al Back Electrode for High-Performance Polymer Solar Cells

    Zhan'ao Tan, Liangjie Li, Cong Li, Li Yan, Fuzhi Wang, Jia Xu, Lu Yu, Bo Song, Jianhui Hou and Yongfang Li

    Article first published online: 29 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400197

    A simple and effective approach is demonstrated to construct a nanostructured back electrode from CeOx suspended solution for efficient light trapping within the PSCs. The enhanced light trapping and electron-collecting CeOx/Al cathode shows general suitability for the normally used photoactive layer of P3HT:PCBM, P3HT:ICBA, and PBDTBDD:PCBM, resulting in significant enhancement in Jsc and Voc, thus leading to improvements in PCE.

  3. Interrelation between Structure – Magnetic Properties in La0.5Sr0.5CoO3

    Michael. D. Biegalski, Yayoi Takamura, Apurva Mehta, Zhang Gai, Sergei V. Kalinin, Haile Ambaye, Valieria Lauter, Dillon Fong, Sokrates T. Pantelides, Young. M. Kim, Jun. He, Albina Borisevich, Wolter Siemons and Hans M. Christen

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400203

    Differing anisotropic strain induced from the underlying substrates not only control the long-range structural symmetries in La0.5Sr0.5CoO3 but also impact the magnetic properties of these epitaxial thin films. The two dominant structural distortions: oxygen octahedral tilts and epitaxial strain, however, have complex and non-intuitive effects on the splitting of the t2g states and consequently on magnetization.

  4. Two-Dimensional Electron Gas with 100% Spin-Polarization in the (LaMnO3)2/(SrTiO3)2 Superlattice under Uniaxial Strain

    F. Cossu, J. Jilili and U. Schwingenschlögl

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400057

    The (LaMnO3)2/(SrTiO3)2 superlattice is analysed with respect to its structure, magnetism, and electronic properties. Our results demonstrate that uniaxial strain in an experimentally accessible range, both tensile and compressive, can be used to induce half-metallicity.

  5. Interfacially Engineered High-Speed Nonvolatile Memories Employing p-Type Nanoribbons

    Yongqiang Yu, XinZheng Lan, Yang Jiang, Yuguang Zhang, Yan Zhang, Zhifeng Zhu, Li Wang, Chunyan Wu and Jiansheng Jie

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201400130

    Charge trapping/detrapping in the ultrathin alumina interfacial layer leads to the high-speed nonvolatile memory effect of the quasi-metal-insulator-semiconductor memory.
