Three shapes of core-shell magnetoelectric visible-light active nanocatalysts composed of CoFe2O4@BiFeO3 were fabricated, i.e., nanooctahedrons, nanocubes, and nanowires. They were all successful in harnessing energy from three different energy sources, including UV–visible (UV–vis) light, mechanical vibrations, and alternating magnetic fields, and initiate a series of redox reactions to destroy organic contaminants. Additionally, our nanocatalysts have the unique ability to readily adapt to changing environments, and scavenge energy from multiple wireless sources, simultaneously, to deliver enhanced water remediation.

A promising device for high performance and excellent stability in inorganic CsPbI3 perovskite solar cell is demonstrated. The addition of In3+ into CsPbI3 films can enter the perovskite crystal lattice and partially replace Pb2+, which could retard the crystallization to form the large grain, free-pinholes, and compact films, resulting in the good charge transport and stability.

In this nanoplatform, super-paramagnetic iron oxides (SPIOs) were clustered on the surface of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), leading to the enhanced T2 relaxation rate and photothermal effect. What’s more, the targeting ability to tumor was introduced with a novel dendrimer (PEG-B4) which was designed for CNTs modification and further strengthened the imaging performances and therapeutic effects.
