    Bifunctional NiSe/Ni3Se2 hybrid electrocatalyst supported on Ni foam is prepared through hydrothermal method. The ideal NiSe/Ni3Se2/NF catalyst displays efficient electrochemical activity and extensive stability toward both hydrogen and oxygen evolution reaction. When used as overall water splitting electrode, the electrocatalyst can afford a 10 mA cm−2 current density at a given voltage of ≈1.6 V with great long-term stability.

    Controlling the agglomeration of Au nanoparticles (NPs) in the albumen layer leads to configurable memory such as write-once-read-many-times memory and resistive switching memory. Programmable memory is triggered by unagglomerated Au NPs with albumen, whereas read-only memory is induced by agglomeration of Au NPs with albumen. The proposed method has a great potential for fabricating albumen-based configurable memories.

    A novel zinc surface with a hierarchical microstructure similar to that of the indicalamus leaf is developed successfully. It possesses high super-hydrophobicity with a contact angle of 167°, and an adhesion force as low as 7.2 µN. This technological advancement is beneficial for preparing zinc coatings that prevent moisture absorption and corrosion.

  4. Defect-Induced Gas Adsorption on Graphene Transistors

    With the quasi-static gate voltage biased on a graphene field effect transistors (FET), the scattering strength of the gas adsorbents is experimentally measured to resolve defect-induced vs intrinsic induced gas adsorptions on graphene. The findings provide critical proofs for understanding the defect-gas interactions on graphene, and could advance the label-free gas sensing applications using graphene FETs.

  5. Heterogeneous Nucleation toward Polar-Solvent-Free, Fast, and One-Pot Synthesis of Highly Uniform Perovskite Quantum Dots for Wider Color Gamut Display

    Inorganic halide perovskite quantum dots (QDs) with ultra-narrow line-width of 15.5 nm and high quantum yield are synthesized with a heterogeneous nucleation induced one-pot strategy, achieving mass production (≈1.8 g) with high product yield. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with the widest colour gamut among QLEDs are fabricated, which are significant for the future high-definition display.
