Immunogenic Bi2Se3 Nanocages mediated photothermal therapy sensitizes tumors to checkpoint inhibition mediated by a PD-L1 antibody, not only ablating cancer cells upon NIR laser but also causing strong anti-cancer immunity to suppress distant tumor growth post PTT.

Laser ablated graphene-based flexible self-powered pressure sensor fabricated by stacking microstructured polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and polyethylene terephthalate/indium tin oxide (PET/ITO) reveals high sensitivity and stable response over > 4,000 compression–release cycles. The approach is highly efficient, scalable and cost-effective for self-powered systems.

Crystalline InGaZnO quaternary nanowires with controllable stoichiometry and perfect superlattice structure have been successfully fabricated by the enhanced ambient-pressure chemical vapor deposition. When configured into transistors, they exhibit the excellent performance of high electron mobility and large on/off current ratio, being comparable or even better than other state-of-the-art metal-oxide thin film transistors.

We develop a three-dimensional (3D) integrated circuit (IC) technology through integrating multi-layer high performance CNT film FETs into one chip, and show that it promotes the operation speed of CNT based 3D ICs considerably. Specially, we demonstrate the fabrication of 3D five-stage ring-oscillator circuits with an oscillation frequency of up to 680 MHz and stage delay of 0.15 ns, which represents the highest speed of 3D CNT-based ICs.

Amorphous Ge with mesoporous architecture was fabricated by a simple acid-etching route at room temperature, which exhibited enhanced Na storage preformance such as high rate capability and cycle stability. The in-situ Raman spectrum explored that the Na could reversibly insert/extract into/out the amorphous Ge, but not in the crystalline Ge.
