Densely Arrayed Active Antennas Embedded in Vertical Nanoholes for Backside‐Illuminated Silicon‐Based Broadband Infrared Photodetection

A responsive, broadband silicon‐based near‐infrared detector is developed using copper nanoblocks embedded in the substrate. The nanoblocks, fabricated in narrow, vertical, and deep nanoholes with minimal electrical connection outbound, induce localized surface plasmons and efficiently emit hot electrons into silicon by through‐substrate backside illumination....

Nanonetwork Composite Coating for Sensing and Corrosion Inhibition

A nanonetwork composite coating with a dual function of sensor and resistance against corrosion is prepared by the electrospinning process followed by impregnation of nanofibers with a hydrophobic coating. Corrosion is detected at early stages while corrosion inhibitors are released from the nanofibers. Abstract A nanonetwork composite coating...

Elasticity‐Driven Membrane Budding through Cholesterol Concentration on Supported Lipid Monolayer–Bilayer Junction

Despite its crucial roles in a variety of biological functions, cholesterol‐assisted underlying mechanism on membrane budding remained one of the mysterious biological events. By reconstruction of lipid monolayer–bilayer junctions, cholesterols are selectively concentrated and membrane transformation is monitored from a sheet to vesicles after membrane...

Enhancing the Long‐Term Robustness of Dropwise Condensation on Nanostructured Superhydrophobic Surfaces by Introducing 3D Conical Microtextures Prepared by Femtosecond Laser

Hierarchical micro‐ and nanostructures with 3D conical microtextures are prepared by incorporating top–down and bottom–up strategies. The introduction of 3D conical microtextures facilitates the departure of large condensed droplets formed due to the pinning effect of surface micro‐defects, which helps the superhydrophobic surface sustain stable dropwise...

Bioinspired Strategy for HMX@hBNNS Dual Shell Energetic Composites with Enhanced Desensitization and Improved Thermal Property

2D material (hBNNS) is first introduced in energetic field with bioinspired strategy in this study. Polydopamine (PDA) act as an important bridge between the energetic crystals and hBNNS. The composites with core@dual shell are in‐depth investigated, and exhibit improved thermal stability and excellently reduced sensitivity in comparison with raw energetic...

Nanosponge TS‐1: A Fully Crystalline Hierarchical Epoxidation Catalyst

MFI titanosilicate nanosponge (nsTS‐1) is a fully crystalline and highly open catalyst. The structure of nsTS‐1 is more defined and uniform than the structure of other layered titanosilicate catalysts (e.g., silica‐titania pillared TS‐1). nsTS‐1 efficiently catalysed the epoxidation of cyclic olefins and terpenes and cyclooctene and linalool conversion...

Tailoring the Surface of Perovskite through In Situ Growth of Ru/RuO2 Nanoparticles as Robust Symmetrical Electrodes for Reversible Solid Oxide Cells

In this work, the exsolved nanoparticles concept is applied for both hydrogen electrode and oxygen electrode in symmetrical solid oxide cells. A simple and low‐cost way to synthesis of Ru/RuO2 nanoparticles via in situ growth is reported. Inspired by exsolved Ru/RuO2 nanoparticles, electrode material (La0.75Sr0.25)0.9Cr0.5Mn0.45Ru0.05O3− δ exhibits...

Gold Nanoparticles Functionalized with Fullerene Derivative as an Effective Interface Layer for Improving the Efficiency and Stability of Planar Perovskite Solar Cells

This article reports the interfacial modification of compact TiO2 ETL with Au NPs functionalized with fully conjugated fullerene C60 derivative. This interlayer facilitates charge transfer and reduces charge carrier recombination pathways at interfaces. Consequently, the performance and stability of the modified devices are improved as compared to the...

Emergent Interfacial Ferromagnetism and Exchange Bias Effect in Paramagnetic/Ferromagnetic Oxide Heterostructures

Polarized neutron reflectometry (PNR) results establish the emergence of the interfacial ferromagnetic LNO layer of thickness ≈6–9 unit cell and magnetization ≈80 emu cc−1 at the LNO/LSMO interface for T < 100 K. The PNR results also show both ferromagnetic and anti‐ferromagnetic coupling between the LSMO and interfacial LNO layers, which depends...

Atomic Layer Engineering of Epsilon‐Near‐Zero Ultrathin Films with Controllable Field Enhancement

Atomic layer deposition of aluminum‐doped zinc oxide thin films offers tailorable epsilon near zero properties such as ENZ wavelengths, optical losses and film thickness. By exciting the ENZ modes, enhanced and controlled light absorption, as well as field confinement in optically thin materials can be achieved, which are pivotal for energy‐efficient...
