    A novel strategy based on the synergistic modulation of lateral and bottom electrostatic potential of grooves is applied for the 1D array of the sub-20 nm colloidal nanoparticles with high resolution. The mechanism of spatial potential modulation is elucidated in detail by incorporation of quantitatively theoretical modeling and consistent experimental results.

    Purified porcine gastric mucins are used as a solution for cornea lubrication or as a molecular layer for contact lens coating. It is shown that these mucins prevent wear formation on corneal tissue probed with a rotating contact lens. The results suggest that purified mucins might be utilized to fight ocular dryness among contact lens wearers.

    Large area oil spill is becoming an increasing threat to environment. Superomniphilic electrospun membranes with core–shell structure are prepared by a scalable process. Presented with the capability of selectively absorbing oil, the membrane can be reused for at least 10 cycles with a separation efficiency of 99.5% and with consistent absorbing performance.

  4. High Quality Hybrid Perovskite Semiconductor Thin Films with Remarkably Enhanced Luminescence and Defect Suppression via Quaternary Alkyl Ammonium Salt Based Treatment

    A universal, simple, and easily scalable additive mediated solvent extraction approach using quaternary alkyl ammonium salts for fabricating highly luminescent hybrid perovskite thin films is demonstrated. The process demonstrates the lowest Urbach energy value, i.e., 17 meV for CH3NH3PbBr3 thin films with photoluminescence quantum yields enhanced from 1% to 30% post treatment.

  5. Schottky Diode Based on a Single Carbon–Nanotube–ZnO Hybrid Tetrapod for Selective Sensing Applications

    A change in selectivity from NH3 to H2 gas by changing the operating temperature of a Schottky diode based on individual ZnO tetrapods covered with carbon nanotubes is reported. Thus, at room temperature the device has a higher response to NH3, while by increasing the temperature up to 150 °C the response to NH3 is considerably decreased while the response to H2 gas is gradually increasing.
