Morphology-controllable synthesis of CoO and LiCoO2 nanocrystals gives two novel-shaped LiCoO2 nanocrystals showing different electrochemical performance, indicating that Li-insertion/deintercalation dynamics might be crystal face-sensitive.

With a thin high-κ wrapped-around gate and reduced interlayer coupling, a multilayer GNRFET can significantly outperform its CNT counterpart with a similar gate and bandgap in terms of the ballistic on-current.

Narrow and long graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) can be fabricated in high yield by sonochemically cutting chemically derived graphene sheets (GSs). A chemical tailoring mechanism involving oxygen-unzipping of GSs under sonochemical conditions is proposed on the basis of experimental observations and previously reported theoretical calculations, and it is suggested that the formation and distribution of line faults on graphite oxide and GSs play important roles in the formation of GNRs.

Large-scale quasi-continuum simulations indicate that multi-walled carbon nanotubes under uniaxial compression show evolving post- buckling morphologies, ranging from asymmetric periodic rippling to helical diamond patterns. We attribute such morphological evolution to the coordinated buckling of the constituent shells.

We demonstrate a doping effect of rare-earth elements with large ionic radius on the phase and shape of NaYF4 nanocrystals, and established a dopant-controlled strategy for preparing water-soluble hexagonal NaYF4 nanorods with enhanced upconversion fluorescence for multicolor bioimaging.

Indirect QD-IHF staining procedures have been simultaneously and sequentially compared using QD–secondary antibody conjugates. The multiplexed QD-based biomarker staining was optimized, providing a convenient tool for multiplexing biomarkers in research and clinical applications.
