    Random micro/nanocrack patterns are generated and used to fabricate a flexible and transparent Cu electrode by combining solution processible Cu nanoparticle ink, random nanocrack network, and low temperature fast laser sintering with minimum Cu oxidation and thermal damage to the plastic substrate while maintaining superior mechanical and optical properties due to its randomness in pattern.

    Organic memory devices with homogeneous active layers of unprecedented thinness (ca. 10 nm) are reported. The devices utilize an active layer of poly-[1,5-diisopropyl-3-(cis-5-norbornene-exo-2,3-dicarboxiimide)-6-oxoverdazyl], a recently synthesized novel radical polymer, with three tunable and switchable charge states (positive, neutral, and negative). The devices are cost-effective in terms of fabrication requirements and exhibit nonvolatile flash properties.

    A novel multifunctional coating for photovoltaic cells incorporating luminescent downshifting, UV-screening, and easy-cleaning functionalities is presented. It consists of a dual-cure hybrid film obtained via photo-induced sol–gel method embedding an organic dye to convert UV photons into visible light. Its application on organic photovoltaics yields a 5% relative performance increase in short circuit current density and a remarkable stability improvement.

  4. Molecular Orientation and Energy Levels at Organic Interfaces

    The correlation between molecular orientations and the energy levels when two different molecules are placed in contact with each other is reported. It is found that the ionization energy of individual molecules and organic–organic interface dipoles depends strongly on molecular orientation.

  5. Direct Vapor Phase Growth and Optoelectronic Application of Large Band Offset SnS2/MoS2 Vertical Bilayer Heterostructures with High Lattice Mismatch

    The direct vapor phase growth of a high-quality vertically stacked heterostructure of SnS2/MoS2 monolayers is demonstrated. Such heterostructures with large band offset, lattice mismatch, and obvious periodic Moiré superlattice patterns show a clear photovoltaic effect, and can realize high performance field-effect transisitors and photodetectors.
