Large Spin‐to‐Charge Conversion at Room Temperature in Extended Epitaxial Sb2Te3 Topological Insulator Chemically Grown on Silicon

By conducting room temperature spin pumping ferromagnetic resonance, a high spin-to-charge conversion occurring in the large area Sb2Te3 topological insulator epitaxially grown by metal–organic chemical vapor deposition on 4″ Si(111) is demonstrated. An inverse Edelstein effect length λIEE in the range of 0.28–0.61 nm is measured, which opens viable...

Intrinsic Magnetic Properties of a Highly Anisotropic Rare‐Earth‐Free Fe2P‐Based Magnet

The authors report the intrinsic highly-anisotropic magnetic properties of Co and Si co-doped single crystals (Fe1− y Co y )2P1− x Si x . A maximum room temperature magnetocrystalline anisotropy of 1.09 MJ m–3 is achieved, with a saturation magnetization of 0.96 T and a Curie temperature of 506 K, making this material promising...

4D Printing of Engineered Living Materials

Direct-ink-write printing of engineered living materials facilitates the spatial control of yeast strain and quantity within synthetic hydrogels. Printed materials morph into programmed forms in response to engineered conditions dictated by genetics of the yeast. Using this programmed shape change, drug reservoirs made from these composites are shown...

Ternary Transition Metal Chalcogenide Nb2Pd3Se8: A New Candidate of 1D Van der Waals Materials for Field‐Effect Transistors

A 1D van der Waals Nb2Pd3Se8 is synthesized by a chemical vapor transport reaction. Field-effect transistors are fabricated on mechanically exfoliated Nb2Pd3Se8 nanowires, displaying electron mobility and I on/I off ratio values of 31 cm2 V−1 s−1 and ≈104, respectively. It is confirmed that Nb2Pd3Se8 field effect transistors can form a stable ohmic...

Synergistic Cascade Hydrogen Evolution Boosting via Integrating Surface Oxophilicity Modification with Carbon Layer Confinement

A synergistic cascade strategy is employed to boost hydrogen evolution via combining carbon layer confinement and surface oxophilicity modification. The as crafted RuCr nanoparticles confined in carbon layers exhibit outstanding hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) activity (j 10 = 19 mV, turnover frequency = 4.25 H2 s−1), surpassing the benchmark Pt/C...

Dynamically Deformable Protein Delivery Strategy Disassembles Neutrophil Extracellular Traps to Prevent Liver Metastasis

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are capable of adhering to the cancer cell surface and promoting the migration and invasion of cells towards the liver, subsequently forming hepatic metastases. Thus, a dynamically deformable protein delivery strategy (PAAP/DNase-1) is developed for liver metastasis prevention in patients with metastatic colon or...

Unraveling the Charge Storage and Activity‐Enhancing Mechanisms of Zn‐Doping Perovskite Fluorides and Engineering the Electrodes and Electrolytes for Wide‐Temperature Aqueous Supercabatteries

A Zn-doping perovskite fluoride (ABF3) (K–Ni–Co–Zn–F) is explored for aqueous (alkaline) supercabatteries (ASCBs), showing a typical bulk phase conversion mechanism for charge storage with the transition of ABF3 perovskite nanocrystals into amorphous metal oxides/(oxy)hydroxides nanosheets. Redox-inert Zn largely enhances the activity of redox-active...

A Biomimetic Self‐Shield Interface for Flexible Perovskite Solar Cells with Negligible Lead Leakage

Stability and toxicity of PSCs are bottleneck challenges for their commercial development. Herein, biomimetic Di-g molecules are introduced to the encapsulated FPSCs as the interface layer, which improves the efficiency of 1.01 cm2 FPSCs up to 20.29%. Importantly, they demonstrate excellent mechanical stability and lead leakage suppression, the efficiency...

Printable Tough Adhesive for Instant Fatigue‐Resistant Bonding of Diverse Surfaces

A rapid one-step strategy for printable tough adhesives is for the first time reported achieving strong, tough adhesion on various wet and dry, porous and nonporous surfaces in seconds, which is widely compatible with casting, painting, and typical patterning/printing techniques, therefore showing great application potential in printing complicated...

MOF‐Based Sustainable Memory Devices

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are considered potential active materials for electronic, optical, and magnetic memory devices. MOFs are highlighted as sustainable materials for a new generation of memristive devices due to their metastability, scalability, and low energy consumption. Analysis of the market of microelectronics and mineral consumption...
