A high-efficiency solar steam generation membrane system (with a solar thermal conversion efficiency up to 92% at 10 kW·m−2) based on plasmonic colloidosome (PCs) and graphene oxide (GO) was developed and further exploited by modification with TiO2 nanoparticles for solar-driven catalytic generation of clean water.

We report the successful simultaneous epitaxial growth of ZnO obliquely aligned nanowire arrays and film on r-plane sapphire substrate. We propose a simple approach for in situ building conductive connection between individually separated nanowires grown on an insulating substrate and describe the detailed synthesis strategy, mechanism, and material properties.

Ultrathin semicircle-shaped copper nanowires were synthesized in ethanol solution and were applied as flexible transparent conductors (FTCs). The fabricated FTCs show excellent optoelectrical performance during stretching indicating their enormous potential in flexible optical devices.

Herein, human dental enamel was studied using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). The determination of apatite grain orientation enables the deduction of a chain formation mechanism of apatite grains with similar orientation, which can then be seen in the TEM images.

Nanocomposite ink is applied to construct metamaterial structures on a flexible shape memory polymer composite. The composites effectively improve the repeatability, reliability, and tunability of sheet resistance because of the shape memory effect of the dielectric substrate and piezoresistive effect of the nanocomposite, and provide a new design concept of a microwave absorber and other electromagnetic devices.

The engineering of self-organized plasmonic metasurfaces is demonstrated using a maskless technique. The proposed nanofabrication approach enables gap-plasmon nanostrip dimer arrays providing optical dichroism and magnetic dipole resonance.
