The enhanced valley splittings of A excitons and trions in monolayer WSe2 on the EuS substrate are carefully studied by circularpolarization-resolved magneto-photoluminescence measurements compared with that in monolayer WSe2 on the bare SiO2/Si substrate. The enhanced valley splitting which originates from magnetic proximity effect can be beneficial for future valleytronics.

A coordination polymer strategy to synthesize single-atom site Fe/N and S-codoped hierarchical porous carbon (Fe1/N,S-PC). As-obtained Fe1/N,S-PC exhibited superior oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) performance with a half-wave potential (E1/2, 0.904 V vs. RHE) that was better than that of commercial Pt/C (E1/2, 0.86 V vs. RHE) and many other nonprecious metal catalysts in alkaline medium.

We prepared a library of nanoparticles with different properties and screened the uptake of an optimized nanoparticle by B cells. We encapsulated the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-Cas9 system into the optimized nanoparticle for arthritis treatment.

The ABi3I10 perovskite composite improved the surface morphology and the extended absorption spectrum. The perovskite solar cell (PSC)-based CsBi3I10 film exhibited a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 1.51% (Jsc ≈ 4.75 mA/cm2; Voc ≈ 0.46 V; FF ≈ 69.1%). Thus, the ABi3I10 perovskite material can be used as a novel material for Pb-free PSCs.

A molten-salt chemical exfoliation methodology is developed for producing free-standing two-dimensional (2D) mesoporous Si nanosheets through deintercalation of CaSi2 in excess molten AlCl3 at 195℃. Owing to their unique structure, the as-prepared Si nanosheets exhibit superior electrochemical characteristics for Li-ion batteries such as a high rate capacity and long cycling life.

Single-layer Rh nanosheets (NSs) demonstrated high efficiency as peroxidase-mimic catalysts obeying typical Michaelis-Menten kinetics, with a record-high catalytic rate constant (Kcat) of 4.45 × 105 s–1 to H2O2, two orders of magnitude higher than that of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). This could be ascribed to the unique single-layer nanostructure of the Rh NSs, with full exposure of surface-active Rh atoms.
