- Simultaneous Preparation and Functionalization of 2D Materials Assisted by Amphiphilic MoS2 Nanosheets
Jianfeng Shen, Yu Pei, Man Wang, Yuancai Ge, Pei Dong, Junhua Yuan, Robert Baines, Pulickel M. Ajayan and Mingxin Ye

A facile route toward simultaneous liquid phase exfoliation and functionalization of 2D materials with amphiphilic MoS2 nanosheets is established. This scalable and low-cost exfoliation process can be applied to myriad 2D materials. Furthermore, the addition of small amounts of exfoliated 2D materials greatly improves the mechanical and thermal properties of the resulting nanocomposites.

A freestanding and ultrathin 2D conjugated charge-transfer polymeric nanosheet is crystallized and directed by electrostatic recognition, π–π interaction, and charge-transfer complexation, which provide a robust solution-processing platform to uncover their emerging multifunctionalities for all organic optoelectronics and multisensing capabilities.

The liquid inside a solid material is one of the most common composite materials in nature. The interface between solid–liquid plays an important role in unique deformation. Here, model systems of two polymers (polydimethylsiloxane–polyvinylidenefluoride) are used to make sphere of solid with liquid inside it.
- Electrical Transport Anisotropy Controlled by Oxygen Vacancy Concentration in (111) LaAlO3/SrTiO3 Interface Structures

The anisotropy in the electronic properties at the conducting 2D interface of (111) LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 can be tuned by post-growth treatment. This treatment strongly tunes the dependence of the device resistance, carrier concentration, and directional anisotropy on the in situ electrostatic back-gate voltage. The effects are attributed to the changes in the oxygen vacancy concentration at the interface.
- Spontaneous Buckling of Multiaxially Flexible and Stretchable Interconnects Using PDMS/Fibrous Composite Substrates
Régis Rogel, Brice Le Borgne, Tayeb Mohammed-Brahim, Emmanuel Jacques and Maxime Harnois

An original strategy to get spontaneous buckling of multiaxially flexible and stretchable interconnections using fibrous substrate is detailed. For the first time, buckling of prestrain-free stiff films is achieved using fibrous nature of daily life substrates (paper or textile). Processing, mechanical behavior, and electrical behavior of metallic ribbons have been studied showing interesting capabilities in order to obtain multiaxially stretchable interconnections.
