A top-emitting organic light-emitting diode is fabricated by a solution-process exclusively, using a PEDOT:PSS formulation with a low contact angle.
One-pot hydrothermal synthesis of molybdenum nickel sulfide with graphene quantum dots as a novel conductive additive for enhanced supercapacitive performance
3D flower-like GQD induced metal doped nickel sulfide was grown on Ni-foam. The MNS-G-2.5 composite delivered a superior specific capacitance and an impressive cyclic stability. In addition, the MNS-G-2.5//rGO ASC has an exceptional energy density.
Nitrogen doping-induced local structure change in a Cr2Ge2Te6 inverse resistance phase-change material
This work investigated the phase change mechanism of a nitrogen-doped Cr2Ge2Te6 phase change material via Raman scattering.
Origin of resistive-switching behaviors of chemical solution deposition-derived BiFeO3 thin-film memristors
Ferroelectric-oxide memristors show more prominent advantages, such as ultra-fast reading and writing speed and extremely low energy consumption. However, the origin of the resistive-switching of ferroelectric memristors has been controversial.
Anisotropic optical properties of GeS investigated by optical absorption and photoreflectance
We present a comprehensive study of bulk GeS optical properties and their anisotropy, by investigation of the fundamental band gap of the material and the energetically higher direct transitions.
Iron oxide nanoparticle incorporated cement mortar composite: correlation between physico-chemical and physico-mechanical properties
Incorporation of iron oxide nanoparticles into cement mortar composites enhances the formation of hydration products and the physico-mechanical performances of the composite construct.
Exploring material chemistry for direct ink writing of reactively formed conductors
Rational design of a reactive material for 3D printing robust electrical conductors which can be integrated into parts or systems.
