Nanosized red phosphorus (RP) was deposited on the surface of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and in the void spaces between rGO layers through a single-step flash-heat treatment coupled with simultaneous reduction of graphene oxide. The resulting RP/rGO flexible film exhibited excellent electrochemical performance toward sodium-ion storage, as well as superior flame retardancy, associated with the RP component.

Atomic movement in a ferroelectric thin film under external electric field and stress was demonstrated for the first time using time-resolved X-ray diffraction. This study indicates that the distance between Fe and O atoms is a key factor determining the polarization in BiFeO3 thin films, rather than the simple displacement of the center atom and/or tetragonality of the unit cell.
