Hollow cobalt-containing carbon polyhedra, with in situ grown N-doped carbon nanotubes (N-CNTs) on both inner and outer surfaces (NCCNT-Co), are designed, synthesized, and then applied as unique sulfur hosts for lithium-sulfur batteries.

Using a precursor monomer containing sulfur atoms, we fabricated one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures on a Au (111) surface at different annealing temperatures through bottom-up methodology. The 1D nanostructures have distinct configurations, varying from sulfur-doped polymers to sulfur-doped chevron-type graphene nanoribbons (CGNRs) and finally, pristine graphene nanoribbons with specific edges of periodic five-member carbon rings.

A new Na0.71Fe1.07PO4 structure is reported to exhibit an extremely small volume change (~ 1%) upon Na ion (de)intercalation. As a result, it shows exceptionally stable, high-rate performance when applied as a cathode material for sodium ion batteries.

Iron sulfide porous nanowires confined in an N-doped carbon matrix (FeS@N-C nanowires) are synthesized via a facile amineassisted solvothermal reaction followed by an annealing process. With a shortened ion diffusion distance, a continuous electron transport pathway, and an excellent stress relaxation, the FeS@N-C nanowire electrode exhibits excellent cycling stability and superior rate capability in lithium-ion batteries.

In situ scanning transmission electron microscopy experiments were performed to manipulate Si atoms attached to graphene edges. We show how they may be removed from the edge, reattached, moved from the edge into the bulk, and the reverse process.We also demonstrate e-beam mediated graphene hole healing.

We developed a method for directly growing epitaxial WS2 and MoS2 monolayers on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) flakes with a high yield and high optical quality;they exhibit better intrinsic light emission features than exfoliated monolayers from natural crystals. The valley Zeeman splitting of WS2 and MoS2 monolayers on hBN have been visualized and systematically investigated.
