An ultrathin and flexible Ti3C2Tx MXene-aramid nanofiber film was fabricated, which displayed strong electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding ability even after heating/cooling treatments within a wide temperature range of −196 – 300 °C. Also, the film is capable of detecting tactile signals via the triboelectric effect.

In this work, a series of stable red emitting CsPbX3 (X = Br, I) nanocrystals (NCs) glasses were prepared by embedding the allinorganic perovskite NCs in the glass matrixes through melting quenching. In particular, the random lasing under two-photon excitation is obtained by utilizing the property that the highly disordered state inside the glass can realize multiple scattering.

An ultra-stable and washable strain sensor based on carbon nanotube (CNT) and Ti3C2Tx MXene exhibits a resistance sensitive to strain, reliable responses to different frequencies, long-term cycling durability over 1,000 cycles, anti-interference of temperature and washability. The strain sensor can simultaneously monitor the electrocardiogram (ECG) signal and joint movement while riding a sports bicycle, enabling the great potential in real-time human healthcare monitoring.
