  • Enhanced Ultra-violet Photodetection Based on a Heterojunction Consisted
           of ZnO Nanowires and Single-Layer Graphene on Silicon Substrate
    • Abstract: In this study, heterojunction photoelectric devices based ZnO nanowires were fabricated on p-Si substrate with and without single-layer graphene as insert layer. ZnO nanowires and graphene were prepared by hydrothermal method and chemical vapor deposition respectively. The effect of insert layer on the morphology of ZnO nanowires was very weak as can be seen from scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffraction. Raman scattering showed that the graphene prepared was a single-layer structure. The ultraviolet detection performance of photodetectors with single graphene insert layer was much better than that of photodetectors without single graphene insert layer. The ultraviolet irradiation sensitivity of photodetectors with single graphene insert layer was up to 1071 which was improved 7 times than that of photodetectors without single graphene insert layer. Moreover, photodetectors with single graphene insert layer had faster response time (1.02 s) and recovery time (0.34 s). Graphic

  • Fabrication of Columnar NaNbO 3 -Based Particles Through Topochemical
           Microcrystal Conversion
    • Abstract: The columnar NaNbO3-based particles with a perovskite structure were successfully synthesized through topochemical microcrystal conversion. First, the precursor was fabricated by facile MSS in the Nb2O5–KCl system. A good dispersion and high aspect ratio were satisfied simultaneously with a small amount of SrCO3 and KSr2Nb5O15 (KSN) seed. Then, columnar NaNbO3-based particles, 10 μm in length and 1 μm in diameter, were obtained via the simple molten salt reaction from the precursor. The results of NaNbO3-based ceramics suggested that the as-synthesized NaNbO3-based particles had the good mechanical properties and homogeneous chemical composition. Graphic

  • Energy Storage Properties of Blended Polymer Films with Normal
           Ferroelectric P(VDF-HFP) and Relaxor Ferroelectric P(VDF-TrFE-CFE)
    • Abstract: With the recent development of wearable/portable electronic devices, the power sources need to be flexible and miniaturized. As the power supply, a dielectric capacitor is used for systems requiring high power in a short time, which in turn necessitates dielectric materials with high energy density and fast discharging time for device miniaturization. In this study, we attempt to improve the energy density of organic materials by blending normal ferroelectric P(VDF-HFP), which offers high dielectric breakdown strength, and relaxor ferroelectric P(VDF-TrFE-CFE), which provides a high dielectric constant. The role of P(VDF-HFP) as a defect in the P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) crystallite improved the properties of the relaxor-ferroelectrics. Increasing the terpolymer content in the blended films reduced the normal ferroelectric β-phase, which revealed that non-polar phase was induced. The copolymer and terpolymer were blended in various weight ratios (10:0, 7:3, 5:5, 3:7, 1:9 and 0:10) and cast into films. The blends with a copolymer/terpolymer ratio of 1:9 showed reduced hysteresis and remnant polarization, compared to those of the pure terpolymer, and a higher maximum polarization (Pmax) value at an electric field of 250 MV/m, indicating a less saturated polarization at high electric field. To conclude, the PVDF-based copolymer/terpolymer (1:9 ratio) blends showed the highest energy density (6.58 J/cm3). Graphic

  • Comparison of Plasma Effect on Dewetting Kinetics of Sn Films Between
           Grounded and Floating Substrates
    • Abstract: When metal thin films deposited typically by sputtering is heated to sufficiently high temperature, thin films tend to disintegrate into individual isolated spherical particles, whose phenomenon is called thermal dewetting. If such metal films are exposed to plasma, however, the dewetting kinetics is enhanced dramatically. One possibility for enhanced dewetting kinetics is the ion bombardment on the film surface from plasma. The other possibility is the excess charge buildup on the film surface provided from plasma. If enhanced dewetting kinetics is due to charge buildup, it can provide an evidence for charge-enhanced kinetics, which has been suggested as a hypothesis to explain the evolution of void-free dense films in non-classical crystallization where the building block is charged nanoparticles. To clarify which is responsible for plasma enhanced dewetting, the dewetting behavior of 100 nm thick Sn films on silicon substrates with native oxide surface was compared between floating and grounded films in the inductively-coupled plasma environment. The dewetting kinetics on the floating film was much higher than that on the grounded film. These results indicate that the charge buildup is responsible for the plasma enhanced dewetting kinetics.

  • Ultra-Low Voltage Metal Oxide Thin Film Transistor by Low-Temperature
           Annealed Solution Processed LiAlO 2 Gate Dielectric
    • Abstract: Low surface-roughness and high-capacitance ion-conducting LiAlO2 gate dielectric thin film has been fabricated by sol–gel technique to develop ultra-low voltage (≤ 1.0 V) indium-zinc-oxide thin film transistor (TFT). This LiAlO2 dielectric shows α-LiAlO2 and γ-LiAlO2 phases those have been fabricated at two different temperatures. For both phases, mobile Li-ion is responsible to achieve a high dielectric constant (κ) of the material that helps to reduce the operating voltage of TFT. Additionally, lower surface roughness of LiAlO2 thin film creates a low-density trap state in the semiconductor/dielectric interface which is capable to reduce operating voltage within 1.0-volt. The device with 700 °C annealed γ-LiAlO2 gate dielectric shows the best device performance with an electron mobility of 25 cm2 V−1 s−1 and an on/off ratio of 3 × 105. Instead, 350 °C annealed α-LiAlO2 dielectric require only one volt to saturate the drain current and shows its mobility and on/off ratio are 13.5 cm2 V−1 s−1 and 1 × 104 respectively. Such kind of unusually low operation voltage TFT fabrication becomes possible because of the higher Li+ mobility of α-LiAlO2 gate dielectric and very low surface trap density. A model on carrier transport mechanism has been prepossessed to explain this achievement. Graphic abstract

  • Interfacial Perpendicular Magnetic Anisotropy in Magnetic Tunnel Junctions
           Comprising CoFeB with FeNiSiB Layers
    • Abstract: Controlling ferromagnetic thickness (t) and properties such as saturation magnetization (Ms) and effective magnetic anisotropy constant (Keff) has been regarded as critical for the performance of magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) with interfacial perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. Here, we report the effects of hybridizing a CoFeB layer with a FeNiSiB layer as part of a magnetic free layer structure. We deposited thin film stacks by magnetron sputtering on Si wafers with thermal oxides and carried out post-deposition heat treatment at 300 °C for 1 h in a vacuum under a magnetic field. We found that Ms and Keff could be tuned by adding a layer of amorphous FeNiSiB. While the Ms and Keff values were modified, the tunneling magnetoresistance (TMR) ratios of the MTJs were maintained, even though the CoFeB thickness was decreased by half. Moreover, an asymmetric bias voltage dependence of TMR was suppressed in the MTJs with FeNiSiB/CoFeB hybrid free layers due to improvements in the interface quality between the CoFeB/MgO interfaces.

  • Increase in Current Density at Metal/GeO 2 /n-Ge Structure by Using
           Laminated Electrode
    • Abstract: In a metal/n-Ge structure, Fermi level pinning tends to occur. The insertion of an oxide layer at the interface between electrodes and n-Ge can effectively reduce the Schottky barrier height. However, the attachment of metal and oxide can cause diffusion of oxygen to the metal due to Gibbs free energy, which degrades the contact characteristics. In this study, we investigated the effects of a laminated electrode on the current density at a metal/GeO2/n-Ge structure. Ni, Pt, Al, or Ti layers with thicknesses of 0.5–20 nm were formed, followed by a deposition of 200-nm-thick Al. The J–V curves of these samples showed that the current density of the Al/Ti/GeO2/n-Ge structure was the largest among them and was about 126 times larger than that of the Al/GeO2/n-Ge structure. We also found that the current density depended on the film thickness of Ti and was the highest at the film thickness of about 2.5 nm or less. To investigate the effect of the Ti interlayer on the current density, we obtained the depth profiles of X-ray photoelectron spectroscope spectra of the Al/Ti/GeO2/n-Ge and Al/GeO2/n-Ge structures. Analysis showed that the diffusion of the oxygen to Al was limited by the 20-nm-thick Ti, and the oxygen was diffused to Al when the film thickness of Ti was about 1 nm. These results demonstrate that laminated oxide structures such as AlOx/TiOx and TiOx/GeO2 can form on the sample with 1-nm-thick Ti, which increases the current density. Graphic

  • Unveiling the Root Cause of the Efficiency-Lifetime Trade-Off in Blue
           Fluorescent Organic Light-Emitting Diodes
    • Abstract: The origin of efficiency-lifetime trade-off in triplet–triplet fusion (TTF) type blue fluorescent organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) was investigated and the device structure to resolve the issue was developed. The efficiency and lifetime were simultaneously improved in the blue OLEDs by developing a multilayer hole transport stack which can adjust carrier densities and recombination zone in the emitting layer (EML). It was found that electron leakage from EML and high spatial density of excitons in the vicinity of the electron blocking layer for high TTF rates by narrow recombination zone are the detrimental factors for efficiency-lifetime trade-off. A multilayer hole transport stack employing a deep highest occupied molecular orbital hole transport layer and an electron blocking layer combined with an appropriate hole blocking layer simultaneously improved the power efficiency by 16% at 500 cd/m2 and lifetime by almost 100% (from 73 h up to 145 h). In addition, the low efficiency in the low luminance region was also completely controlled, resulting in negligible efficiency variation in the entire luminance range. Graphic

  • Impact of Size on Humidity Sensing Property of Copper Oxide Nanoparticles
    • Abstract: Three sizes of CuO nanosheets were synthesized by hydrothermal method. The structure and morphology of CuO nanosheets were characterized by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. Dielectrophoresis nano-manipulation technique was employed to arrange the materials on pre-designed Ti/Au electrodes to fabricate the three humidity sensors, and the sensing properties were then tested. The experimental results show that the sensitivity greatly increases with the decreasing size of CuO nanosheets, the sensitivity of sensor a, b, c are 369%, 3278%, 22,611% in 97.3% RH, respectively. The smaller sized CuO nanomaterials have better response characteristic, the response time of sensor a, b, c under 11.3–97.3% RH are 53 s, 49 s, 32 s, respectively. And correspondingly, hysteresis properties and the repeatability are also a little influenced. In addition, based on complex impedance spectroscopy and multilayer adsorption theory, the impact of size on humidity sensing property was discussed. The results indicated the feasibility to obtain higher performance of humidity sensor, especially the higher sensitivity, via employment the smaller size sensing nanomaterials. Graphic

  • Preparation of Highly (002) Oriented Ti Films on a Floating Si (100)
           Substrate by RF Magnetron Sputtering
    • Abstract: The possibility of preparing highly (002) oriented Ti films on the Si (100) substrate was studied using RF sputtering. The deposition behavior was compared between floating and grounded substrates at room temperature. Highly (002) oriented Ti films could be successfully prepared on the floating Si (100) substrate, which was revealed by X-ray diffraction and high resolution transmission electron microscope. To understand the different deposition behavior between floating and grounded substrates, the incident energy of ions during RF sputtering was estimated from the substrate temperature measured by the K-type thermocouple. The incident energy on the floating substrate was lower by 20% than that on the grounded substrate. It was suggested that the lower incident energy on the floating substrate would be responsible for the deposition of highly (002) oriented Ti films at room temperature. Graphic

  • Effects of Low-Temperature GeSn Buffer Layers on Sn Surface Segregation
           During GeSn Epitaxial Growth
    • Abstract: We investigate the effects of the low-temperature (LT) GeSn buffer layers on Sn surface segregation during the growth of the additional GeSn layers. Sn surface segregation was observed in the GeSn layers formed on Si substrates at the growth temperature of 300 °C. However, there was no Sn surface segregation in the GeSn layers grown at 300 °C on the LT GeSn buffer layers formed at 225 °C. The Sn surface segregation was limited by the effects of the LT buffer layers. Crystallinity of the GeSn layers grown at 300 °C on the LT GeSn buffer layers was investigated by Raman spectroscopy. The full width at half maximum of the Ge–Ge Raman spectrum obtained from the GeSn layers was about 3.1 cm−1, which means that the formed GeSn layers have excellent crystallinity. We have successfully demonstrated that the LT GeSn buffer layers can limit the Sn surface segregation, which increases the growth temperature and improves crystallinity of the GeSn layers. Graphic

  • Microstructural and Magnetic Characterization of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles
           Fabricated by Pulsed Wire Evaporation
    • Abstract: The iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) fabricated by pulsed wire evaporation were characterized by analytical electron microscopy and magnetic properties measurement system (MPMS). The IONPs produced at various charging voltages (2.6, 5.0 and 6.3 kV) exhibited the average size of 48 nm and the differences in shape, i.e., spherical (83%) and hexagonal (17%) structures. The hexagonal nanoparticles showed single-crystalline magnetite (Fe3O4) with major facets made of {111} planes. The chemical shifts in core–shell nanoparticles were observed by electron energy loss spectroscopy, indicating a dependency of the edge position related to the oxidation state of Fe. From the MPMS, the saturation magnetization and the coercivity of IONPs were measured to be 64 emu/g and 37 Oe at 300 K, respectively. The results provide useful information for the relationship between the nanostructure and magnetic behavior. Graphic TEM images of iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) fabricated by pulsed wire evaporation. Two distinct shapes of IONPs can be seen, i.e., hexagonal and core/shell structures. The hexagonal nanoparticles showed single-crystalline Fe3O4 magnetite with major facets made of {111} planes, while the core/shell nanoparticle consisted of Fe core and Fe3O4 shell. By magnetic property measurement system (MPMS), the saturation magnetization and the coercivity were measured to be 64 emu/g and 37 Oe at 300 K, respectively. This study provides the possibility for developing novel and various IONPs with unprecedented structures and/or magnetic properties.

  • Optimization of Transistor Characteristics and Charge Transport in
           Solution Processed ZnO Thin Films Grown from Zinc Neodecanoate
    • Abstract: Solution processing of metal oxide-based semiconductors is an attractive route for low-cost fabrication of thin films devices. ZnO thin films were synthesized from one-step spin coating-pyrolysis technique using zinc neodecanoate precursor. X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV–visible optical transmission spectrometry and photoluminescence spectroscopy suggested conversion to polycrystalline ZnO phase for decomposition temperatures higher than 400 °C. A 15 % precursor concentration was found to produce optimal TFT performance on annealing at 500 °C, due to generation of sufficient charge percolation pathways. The device performance was found to improve upon increasing the annealing temperature and the optimal saturation mobility of 0.1 cm2 V−1 s−1 with ION/IOFF ratio ~ 107 was achieved at 700 °C annealing temperature. The analysis of experimental results based on theoretical models to understand charge transport envisaged that the grain boundary depletion region is major source of deep level traps and their effective removal at increased annealing temperature leads to evolution of transistor performance. Graphic Single-step spin coating-pyrolysis synthesis of ZnO thin films from non-aqueous precursor zinc neodecanoate has been investigated for transistor applications.

  • A Novel Transparent Microwave Thin Film Coating Technique Applied to
           Dual-Band Antennas
    • Abstract: In this paper, we propose a novel transparent microwave thin film coating technique and discuss its application in planar dual-band antennas (0.9/5.55 GHz). We developed a new process for activating the nano-alignment thin film from high to low resistivity (from 1.96 to 1.29 × 10−4 Ω cm) and from partial to full transparency (from 55 to 83% transmittance) within 150 s. The platform of the activation process comprises a periodic electrode, an optical microscope, and an alternating current signal generator. The periodic electrode can effectively rearrange the nano-alignment thin film into an ordered arrangement, which enhances the properties of the thin film in the microwave frequency range. A high-transparency and low-resistivity dual-band antenna is designed and fabricated using the proposed microwave thin film coating technique. The dual-band antenna has operating bandwidths of 740–960 and 5030–7030 MHz and potential applications in transparent electronics such as wearable devices and intelligent cars. Graphic

  • Effect of Sn-Decorated MWCNTs on the Mechanical Reliability of
           Sn–58Bi Solder
    • Abstract: The mechanical reliability of Sn–MWCNT composite solder containing various content of Sn-decorated MWCNTs (0, 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2 wt%) and Sn–58Bi solder were investigated. The Sn-decorated MWCNTs nanoparticles were used to improve the mechanical reliability of Sn–58Bi solder, which is a representative, low-temperature, lead-free solder. The Sn-decorated MWCNT nanoparticles were synthesized using the polyol method, and the Sn–MWCNT composite solder paste was fabricated by mechanical mixing. The shear and bending tests were conducted to evaluate the mechanical properties of the solder joints. We identified the microstructure of solder to investigate the intermetallic compound and failure mechanism of Sn–MWCNT composite solder. Furthermore, a high-temperature storage test at 100 °C for 1000 h was performed to determine long-term reliability. The shear strength and fracture energy increased about 21% and 23%, respectively, with 0.1 wt% Sn-decorated MWCNTs. In addition, the bending reliability of Sn–58Bi solder increased approximately 25%.

  • Effect of Thermoelectric Leg Thickness in a Planar Thin Film TEC Device on
           Different Substrates
    • Abstract: Recently, mobile application processors (APs) have suffered from thermal issues such as local hot spot generation. Several approaches for chip cooling, such as dynamic thermal management, and heat pipe cooling, have been attempted so far, but, these solutions cannot completely eliminate increasing thermal issues. Therefore, in this study, we fabricated a planar type of thin film thermoelectric cooler (TEC) as an active cooling device for a mobile AP chip. We studied the effect of thickness on a planar thin film TEC device related to Joule heating and demonstrated the Peltier cooling effect on polyimide (PI) and Si substrates. The optimal thicknesses of n-type Bi2Te3 and p-type Sb2Te3 films were evaluated by ANSYS® simulation, and are 5.05 μm and 5.45 μm, respectively. It was shown that heat moves to the TE leg on the PI substrate, while the Si substrate serves as a heat sink according to the IR thermography analysis. The optimal thickness of the TE showed a temperature difference between the cold junction and hot junction up to 1.3 °C. Graphical

  • Synthesis of Ag@rGO/g-C 3 N 4 Layered Structures and Their Application to
           Toxic Gas Sensors: Effect of Ag Nanoparticles
    • Abstract: In this work, graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) was synthesized by simple pyrolysis of melamine, and it was hybridized with reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using a stepwise solution method. AgNPs were randomly distributed on the surface of rGO/g-C3N4 layered hybrid structure, forming Ag@rGO/g-C3N4 composite. It was disclosed that the Ag@rGO/g-C3N4 composite responded to both oxidizing and reducing gases at room temperature, and its response was greatly enhanced from those of pristine rGO and rGO/g-C3N4. The room temperature responses of the composite were estimated at − 95% and 8% for 50 ppm of NO2 and NH3, respectively. The roles of structural components were discussed, and a gas-sensing mechanism was proposed based on the respective roles. In particular, AgNPs turned out to play an important role in the gas-sensing activity. Graphic

  • Properties of CoS 2 /CNT as a Cathode Material of Rechargeable
           Aluminum-Ion Batteries
    • Abstract: Aluminum ion batteries (AIBs) are considered, in principle, promising post-lithium-ion batteries, which are potential for using in grid-scale energy storage and electric vehicles, owing to the economic Al. The inflammable ionic liquid electrolyte endows stable plating and stripping of Al ions. A spotlighted research on cathode material has been preforming to obtain a high-performance cathode material that can match well with the prominent Al foil. However, one over-looked factor for the study of cathode materials is the cost and possibility of mass-production. With this key point in mind, we as the forerunner studied the CoS2/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) composite cathode material composed of low cost and commercialized CoS2 and multi-wall CNTs to promote the development of AIBs. Stable charge/discharge plateaus (at 1.2/0.9 V vs. AlCl4−/Al) during cycling test were obtained for the CoS2/CNTs product at a high current density of 1000 mA g−1, with an extremely high Coulombic efficiency of 98% and reasonable electrochemical capacities. This report is expected to contribute more contribution in the development of cathode materials for rechargeable AIBs. Graphic

  • S@GO as a High-Performance Cathode Material for Rechargeable Aluminum-Ion
    • Abstract: Aluminum-ion batteries (AIBs) are considered promising post lithium-ion batteries owing to their outstanding safety, gravimetric and volumetric capacities, and cost efficiency advantages. However, one practical obstacle to their development is the lack of reliable cathode materials that can be coupled with the distinguished Al anode. To address this issue, we synthesized a S@GO composite material for use as a cathode material in AIBs. The synthesized S@GO material exhibits a rod structure with a diameter of around 100 nm. Inside these nanorods, sulfur nanoparticles with a size of around 5 nm were uniformly anchored on the graphene sheets. By taking the advantage of an introduction of graphene sheets, the capacities were significantly preserved, displaying a capacity that was more than double that of a bare S active material. In addition, a 3000-cycle long-term repeated charge/discharge measurement exhibited extremely stable capacity values with a high Coulombic efficiency of 98% at the 3000th cycle. The charge/discharge processes were clearly shown during the repeated cycling measurement at a high current density of 1000 mA g−1. This work is expected to stimulate further study of elemental S used as a cathode material for high-performance AIBs. Graphic
