    Two 1D conjugated coordination polymer (CCP) chains are synthesized and fabricated into memory devices that perform ternary resistive random access memory (RRAM) behaviors. Benefiting from strong intermolecular interaction, the devices can be retained for three months and work at 150 °C for more than 10 000 s, which make 1D CCPs a promising candidate for next-generation materials for high-density data storage.

  2. Hybrid YBa2Cu3O7 Superconducting–Ferromagnetic Nanocomposite Thin Films Prepared from Colloidal Chemical Solutions

    The synthesis and magnetostructural characterization of YBCO superconducting films with ferromagnetic inclusions prepared by a chemical solution methodology, by mixing a colloidal solution of preformed ferrite nanoparticles into the TFA-YBCO precursor solution is reported. These hybrid nanocomposites will allow studying several fundamental issues such as the nucleation of superconductivity and the mechanisms of magnetic vortex pinning in superconducting/ferromagnetic heterostructures.

  3. Aerosol-Jet Printing of Polymer-Sorted (6,5) Carbon Nanotubes for Field-Effect Transistors with High Reproducibility

    Reproducible aerosol-jet printing of semiconducting (6,5) single-walled carbon nanotubes is demonstrated for large numbers of field-effect transistors with high on/off current ratios and on-conductances at low operating voltages. Sparse and thick nanotube films can be printed with a minimum of material and good uniformity. No detrimental influence of the printing process on the transistor performance over time is observed.

  4. Graphdiyne Filter for Decontaminating Lead-Ion-Polluted Water

    Graphdiyne is synthesized on 3D highly porous copper foam. Taking advantage of the strong interaction between acetylenic links and lead ions, the resultant material is used directly as a filter to eliminate lead ions from water. The filter shows effective removal performance and can be recovered through treatment with an acidic solution.

  5. A Lewis-Acid Monopolar Gate Dielectric for All-Inkjet-Printed Highly Bias-Stress Stable Organic Transistors

    A Lewis-acid monopolar polymer with both hydrophobicity and lipophilicity is used as the gate dielectric for all-inkjet-printed highly bias-stress stable organic thin-film transistors. The hydrophobicity of this polymer prevents water molecules from migrating and being trapped in the gate dielectric, while its lipophilicity allows good wetting by organic solvents for further deposition of other functional layers.
