We predict that the on-state current, delay time, and power dissipation of monolayer black phosphorene tunneling transistors surpass the requirements of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors for high-performance devices in the 6-10 nm scale using ab initio quantum transport calculations.

Flexible perovskite solar cells and laser-patterned modules with polyethylene terephthalate (PET)/indium tin oxide (ITO)/SnO2/mesoporous-TiO2(meso-TiO2)/CH3NH3PbI3/2, 2', 7, 7'-tetrakis-(N, Ndi-p-methoxyphenylamine)-9, 9'-spirobifluorene (Spiro-MeOTAD)/ Au architecture fabricated at low temperature using solution processed methods delivered a maximum power conversion efficiency of 14.8% and 8.8% respectively under 1 sun illumination. State of the art solar cell maximum power densities of 19.2 μW/cm2(estimated efficiency of 13.3%) at 400 lx under indoor LED light illumination were also reached.

A novel delivery strategy of oxalate oxidase (OxO) that is encapsulated within a thin zwitterionic shell is reported for the treatment of hyperoxaluria. As-formed OxO nanocapsules exhibit enhanced catalytic activity, significantly prolonged plasma circulation time, and substantially mitigated immunogenicity compared with the native OxO.

Soft thermal nanoimprint lithography is demonstrated using a novel nanocomposite mold, which is made of flexible PDMS substrate with chemically attached rigid relief features. The applications of the nanocomposite mold included a high-resolution nanopatterns with sub-100 nm features thermally imprinted on non-planar surfaces, such as lenses.

Magnesium hydride nanocrystals homogeneously distributed in carbon, obtained by thermal plasma processing, exhibit high capacity and excellent stability in lithium storage applications. These materials retain a reversible capacity of 620 mAh·g-1 after 1, 000 cycles, which represents a significant improvement in the performance of magnesium hydride-based anodes for lithium ion batteries.

Intrinsic catalase-like activity of Fe3O4 nanoparticles (NPs) both induced and antagonized the accumulation of toxic reactive oxygen species (ROS), and thereby modulated the extent of cellular oxidative stress, autophagic activity, and programmed cell death.

Dual-function nanoparticles, with the property of aggregation-induced emission (AIE) and capacity for reactive oxygen species production, were used to achieve passive/active targeting of a tumor. Good contrast of in vivo imaging and obvious therapeutic efficacy were observed at a low dose of AIE nanoparticles and low irradiance of light, resulting in negligible side effects.
