A bioinspired soft actuator that responds to an alternating magnetic field is fabricated.
A high‐throughput hydrodynamic exfoliation process yields a highly stable colloidal suspension of 2D nanosheets in water.
Printable and ultrastretchable conductors are fabricated by transferring printed silver ink onto hybrid hydrogel–elastomer substrates.
Lambert Alff and his team from Darmstadt University of Technology (TU Darmstadt) in Germany, along with their collaborators, propose a novel unified model for hafnium-oxide resistive random access memory (RRAM) based on the role of oxygen vacancy defects.
Thomas D. Anthopoulos and colleagues report a simple, environmentally-friendly processing method for copper(I) thiocyanate (CuSCN), a next-generation hole-transport layer (HTL) for organic and hybrid perovskite solar cells. The power conversion efficiency reaches 17.5%—a remarkable improvement over conventional polymer HTLs.
