    The first environmentally friendly, low-cost, and multifunctional device with the capability to act as pressure sensor, transistor, and memory is demonstrated. This tactile transistor memory can store the pressure information after removing the external stimuli for subsequence manipulation, which is very useful for the development of learnable intelligent robotic systems.

  3. Oxide Semiconductor Phototransistor with Organolead Trihalide Perovskite Light Absorber

    A hybrid phototransistor consisting of a bottom-gated indium gallium zinc oxide transistor and a solution-processed needle-like organolead trihalide perovskite capping layer is developed. This integrated oxide–perovskite hybrid phototransistor shows high field effect mobility and high sensitivity to light in both UV and visible regions, which is useful for various photosensing applications.

  4. A Flexible PMN-PT Ribbon-Based Piezoelectric-Pyroelectric Hybrid Generator for Human-Activity Energy Harvesting and Monitoring

    Yan Chen, Yang Zhang, Feifei Yuan, Fei Ding and Oliver G. Schmidt

    Version of Record online: 20 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/aelm.201600540

    A flexible hybrid generator is developed using top-down fabricated single-crystal (1−x)Pb(Mg,Nb)O3-xPbTiO3 ribbons. The resulting materials offer exceptional piezoelectric and pyroelectric characteristics for high-sensitivity monitoring both mechanical and thermal signals generated by human activities. This study indicates great potential applications for portable and wearable electronics.

  5. A Highly Stretchable and Fatigue-Free Transparent Electrode Based on an In-Plane Buckled Au Nanotrough Network

    A highly stretchable transparent electrode based on in-plane buckled Au nanotrough networks is engineered, showing excellent stretchability (300% strain) with no fatigue upon cyclic stretching to 100% strain for 100 000 cycles. Combined with superior optoelectronic performance (sheet resistance ≈1 Ω sq−1 at optical transmittance of 91%), the Au nanotrough networks can be applied to human skins as flexible transparent electrodes.
