    In this paper, the fabrication steps involved in engineering a highly robust WO3/“solid” polymer electrolyte mono-electrochrome switch by tuning the underlying electrolyte chemistry are reported. These switches can be safely used for on-the-spot visual monitoring of charge storage levels. With high charge-discharge cycling stability, these devices also exhibit a broad optical modulation and fast response.

  2. Radiation Tolerant Interfaces: Influence of Local Stoichiometry at the Misfit Dislocation on Radiation Damage Resistance of Metal/Oxide Interfaces

    By controlling CrxV1−x alloy film composition, the lattice mismatch with MgO single crystal is adjusted so that the misfit dislocation density varies at the epitaxial CrxV1−x alloy film/MgO interface. These interfaces are exposed to irradiation and in situ and ex situ results show that the film with a semicoherent interface withstands irradiation up to 100 dpa.

  3. Surfactant-Free Synthesis of Graphene-Supported PdCu Nanocrystals with High Alloying Degree as Highly Active Catalyst for Formic Acid Electrooxidation

    A surfactant-free coprecipitation/coreduction method is developed for the synthesis of graphene-supported nanocrystalline PdCu (PdCu/GN) hybrids. The strong interaction between graphene oxide and metal hydrates results in uniform precipitation on the graphene oxide surface. The nanocrystalline PdCu/GN hybrids exhibit higher activity and durability than commercial Pd/C catalyst for the formic acid oxidation reaction.

  4. A General Surface Swelling-Induced Electroless Deposition Strategy for Fast Fabrication of Copper Circuits on Various Polymer Substrates

    A surface swelling-induced electroless deposition strategy is developed to prepare copper (Cu) circuits on various polymer substrates. The circuits are grown on silver centers in pre-designed patterns and can be easily erased and repeatedly deposited three times with only a 15% decrease in conductivity. The Cu-Polyimide shows excellent flexibility and Cu-Silicon rubber exhibits high bending resistance.

  5. Electrospun Porous Perovskite La0.6Sr0.4Co1xFexO3δ Nanofibers for Efficient Oxygen Evolution Reaction

    A series of porous La0.6Sr0.4Co1xFexO3δ (x = 0–1) nanofibers is successfully prepared by electrospinning as catalysts for oxygen evolution reaction. The La0.6Sr0.4Co0.6Fe0.4O3δ nanofiber catalyst exhibits higher activity and better durability than those of the state-of-the-art IrO2 catalyst.
