A wearable strain sensing textile was fabricated based on onedimensional stretchable and weavable yarn sensors. The fabric showed great potential for application to smart wearable functional electronics such as human sports tracker systems, calling devices for bedridden inpatients, and converters for speech-impaired people.

Here, we show that by using a unique assembly technique, the pristine carbon nanotube is assembled into a self-aligned device geometry with preloaded internal stress. This results in a GHz resonator with excellent comprehensive performance.

The respectively formed lamellar and quadrilateral structures of propeller-shaped tetraphenylethylene molecules H4TCPE and H4ETTC at the 1-heptanoic acid/HOPG interface show diverse responses to the introduction of three vinylpyridine derivatives (DPE, PEBP-C4, and PEBP-C8) owing to synergistic effects of various interactions.

To improve the performance and reduce the performance variation of organic field-effect transistors, a small-molecule organicsemiconductor is blended with an insulator polymer, and then post-treated by gate-stress. The gate-induced generation of an electret is thermally accelerated and can be achieved under moderate gate voltage in the presence of vertical phase separation.

High-quality bilayer PdSe2 islands were fabricated on a grapheneSiC(0001) substrate by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). A bandgap of 1.15 ± 0.07 eV was revealed and a rigid bandgap shift of 0.2 eV was observed for PdSe2 layers grown on monolayer graphene as compared to those grown on bilayer graphene.

We designed a two-layer carbon-coated MoS2/carbon hybrid nanofiber material (MoS2/C/C fiber), by fabricating carbon-coated three-dimensional (3D) hierarchical MoS2 nanospheres and then embedding them into ~250 nm diameter electrospun fibers. The double-layer carbon coating plays a key role in preventing the aggregation of MoS2 flakes and restraining the MoS2 volume changes and consumption of sulfides and molybdenum during lithiation/delithiation.

Identification of the Raman mode of air-stable low-buckled (with sp2 configuration) silicene nanosheets synthesized on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite located at 542.5 cm−1, perfectly reproduced by ab initio calculations. Scanning tunneling microscopy supports the growth of a low-buckled honeycomb structure.
