A highly sensitive chemical vapor deposited multilayer MoSe2 field-effect transistor (FET) for a NO2 gas sensor is demonstrated. The sensor exhibits ultra-high sensitivity, real-time response, and fast on每off switching. Device modeling and quantum transport simulations reveal that the variation of gap states in the MoSe2 with NO2 concentration is the key mechanism in MoSe2 FET-based NO2 gas sensors.

Nano Res. Table of contents Arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD)-tailored dendrimers were used to create uneven distributions of RGD on poly(L-lactic acid) with tunable local ligand densities depending on the initial bulk concentration. The control of RGD local surface density at the nanoscale acts as a regulator of chondrogenic commitment: substrates presenting intermediate cell adhesiveness favor cell condensation and the early chondrogenic differentiation of adult mesenchymal stem cells.

Uptake of three different size distributions of label-free graphene oxide was carefully tracked in human monocyte cells (THP-1) using electron microscopy. The data show clear size dependence. Larger flakes (and clusters) are taken up by the cells more easily than smaller flakes. Moreover, uptake is shown to occur very rapidly, within two min of incubation. The data highlight a crucial need for cellular incubation studies with nanoparticles to be conducted with short incubation periods as certain dependencies (e.g., size and concentration) are lost with long incubation periods.

One-dimensional (1D) carbon nanofibers embedded with 20-nm Bi nanoparticles are prepared via a single-nozzle electrospinning method with a specified Bi source followed by carbothermal reduction. The Bi/C nanofibers exhibit superior electrochemistry performance as anode materials for Li- and Na-ion batteries.
