  • Impedance Matching Techniques of Multi-layered PZT Ceramics for
           Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters
    • Abstract: In this research, the possibility of passive damping system based on the piezoelectric energy harvesting has been proposed and tested. To apply passive damper system, piezoelectric ceramics were stacked, and impedance was matched. Piezoelectric energy harvesters were employed due to their excellent piezoelectric and robust properties. Especially, multilayered (Pb,Zr)TiO3 piezoelectric ceramic have high piezoelectric charge coefficient d33 and piezoelectric voltage coefficient g33 for actuator and harvester applications, respectively. Multilayered (Pb,Zr)TiO3 piezoelectric ceramics can generate comparatively high current level compared with single layered piezoelectric ceramics due to its parallel connected capacitors. In energy harvester applications, multilayered (Pb,Zr)TiO3 piezoelectric ceramics have a role of voltage source with capacitive impedance. Due to considerable impedance in voltage sources, the role of impedance matching between the source and output terminal is more critical. By employing the piezoelectric energy harvesting system for the passive damper, output energy of 11 μJ/cm3 was obtained at the 100 μF capacitors. Therefore, impedance matching technologies were intensively investigated to obtain maximum output energy for storing capacitors. Graphical

  • Synthesis and Characterization of Plasma-Polymer Gate Dielectric Films for
           Graphene Field Effect Transistor Devices
    • Abstract: In this study, a gate dielectric suitable for application in field effect transistors (FETs) was synthesized. Gate dielectrics were deposited using cyclohexane via plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. These films were synthesized on silicon wafers substrates with plasma powers adjusted from 10 to 60 W. Graphene was synthesized on a nickel substrate by a thermal chemical vapor deposition process and coupled to the plasma-polymer via water transfer. Alpha step, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy findings in addition to water contact angle measurements were analyzed to characterize the physical and chemical properties of the plasma-polymer thin film. Furthermore, a probe station was used to characterize the FET devices fabricated using such films. Graphical

  • The Improved Performance of Molybdenum Disulphide Thin-Film Transistors
           Operating at Low Voltages by Solution-Processed Fluorocarbon Encapsulation
    • Abstract: We demonstrate a simple and reproducible method of solution-processed fluorocarbon encapsulation which significantly improves the device performance of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) thin-film transistors (TFTs) operating at low voltages. Using such encapsulation, the key factors of the device, such as field-effect mobility, sub-threshold swing and device-to-device uniformity were improved. This achievement is presumed to stem from the screening effect of fluorocarbon, poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-trifluoroethylene) (PVDF-TrFE) which possesses a chemical structure with polarizable interactions of carbon–fluorine (C–F) bonds in the end groups, on the scattering of charge impurities in MoS2 TFTs. We also investigate the Raman spectra to verify the effects of solution-processed fluorocarbon encapsulation on the structure of MoS2 thin films where the decreases in the intensity levels of E2g and A1g were observed without a shift in the peak. We believe that such a screening method can be a promising approach to recover the intrinsic electrical characteristics of MoS2 TFTs for nano-electronics with low power consumption. Graphical

  • Parametric Optical Property Database for CdSe 1−x S x Alloys
    • Abstract: A comprehensive database of the optical response in the form of complex dielectric function (ε) spectra of magnetron co-sputtered CdSe1−xSx alloy thin films is developed spanning the full 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 range of compositions. A parametric model is presented and used to determine ε describing each film while in both as-deposited and thermally annealed states. This model combines a critical point electronic transition lineshape and an Urbach tail in the above- and below-bandgap portions of the measured spectrum, respectively, while maintaining first derivative continuity. Additionally, this hybrid parametric description of ε automatically determines the Urbach energy (EU) describing the width of the sub-bandgap absorption tail, thereby providing a relative measure of the defect density of the modeled material. These as-deposited CdSe1−xSx films are generally found to be the most defective at intermediate compositions with some EU reaching energies > 200 meV. Annealing reduces EU in all films to a relatively uniform value < 100 meV for all compositions. Leveraging the full ε database in modeling CdS-CdSe bi-layer stacks is demonstrated to be effective in detecting the composition gradients resulting from inter-diffusion upon annealing. The accuracy of this technique is verified through excellent agreement with cross sectional energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy measurements. Graphical

  • Solution-Processed Hybrid Ambipolar Thin-Film Transistors Fabricated at
           Low Temperature
    • Abstract: We demonstrate solution-processed hybrid ambipolar thin-film transistors (TFTs) employing a stack structure composed of indium–gallium–zinc-oxide (IGZO) and single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) as an active channel fabricated at low temperature. With an optimized deep-ultraviolet (DUV) photo annealing process for sol–gel based IGZO thin film on SWCNT random networks, the ambipolar transport of both electrons and holes with good electrical characteristics was realized. We also investigate the effect of DUV photo annealing on the material characteristics of solution-processed hybrid stack films and on the device performance of solution-processed hybrid ambipolar TFTs compared to those of samples thermally annealed at 500 °C, which is required for solution-processed high-quality IGZO thin films. The Raman spectra show that DUV photo annealing ensures hole transport in SWCNT random networks of a hybrid stack film, where the intensity of the 2D peak to the G peak was not changed compared to that of pristine SWCNT random networks. We believe that these analytical investigations reveal that DUV photo annealing is a promising method by which to realize hybrid ambipolar SWCNT/IGZO TFTs fabricated at low temperature. Graphical

  • Fe 3 O 4 –ZnO Core–Shell Nanoparticles Fabricated by Ultra-Thin Atomic
           Layer Deposition Technique as a Drug Delivery Vehicle
    • Abstract: Fe3O4–ZnO nanoparticles with core–shell structures were successfully fabricated by an atomic layer deposition method. The core–shell NPs consisted of superparamagnetic Fe3O4 cores of 100 nm average size and conformal ZnO shells of 10 nm thickness. The NPs showed a saturation magnetization of ~ 23 emu/g, which is suitable for magnetic delivery of the particles. Cytotoxicity testing revealed that the Fe3O4–ZnO NPs have high cell viability (over 90%) after 24 h culture. Also, they exhibited a high ibuprofen-loading capacity (640 μg per mg of the particles) and good release ability (> 90% after 72 h in simulated body fluid). As a result, the Fe3O4–ZnO nanoparticles with conformal ultra-thin ZnO shell layers are anticipated as promising drug delivery vehicles with acceptable cell viability and high drug loading-release abilities.

  • Preparation of Li 7 P 2 S 8 I Solid Electrolyte and Its Application in
           All-Solid-State Lithium-Ion Batteries with Graphite Anode
    • Abstract: A Li7P2S8I solid electrolyte was prepared by the reaction between raw materials in an ethyl propionate medium and drying of the precursor. The obtained sample was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), cyclic voltammetry, DC polarization test and AC impedance measurements. The formation of Li7P2S8I was confirmed from the results of XRD. Cyclic voltammetry and the DC polarization test indicated that the obtained Li7P2S8I was stable at low potential versus Li/Li+ and against Li metal. The all-solid-state lithium-ion battery was fabricated by using Li–In, Li7P2S8I solid electrolyte and a graphite composite that was prepared by mixing graphite, Li7P2S8I solid electrolyte and vapor grown carbon fiber with a vortex mixer. It was observed that the electrode materials were homogeneously mixed from the scanning electron microscopy image of the composite prepared by using the vortex mixer. The fabricated half-cell was characterized by the charge–discharge test. The Li7P2S8I solid electrolyte is suitable for use with a graphite anode because the charge–discharge test exhibited an initial discharge capacity of 372 mA h g−1 and high reversibility of capacity.

  • Amorphous V 2 O 5 Positive Electrode Materials by Precipitation Method in
           Magnesium Rechargeable Batteries
    • Abstract: Amorphous vanadium pentoxide (a-V2O5) was prepared via the precipitation method, for use as a positive-electrode material in magnesium rechargeable batteries (MRBs). Amorphous metal oxides can be good candidates as the host materials for the Mg divalent ion because of many vacancies and huge void spaces. Furthermore, amorphous metal oxides generally do not experience a phase change during cycles. The electrochemical characteristics of the a-V2O5 and c-V2O5 (crystalline vanadium pentoxide) were evaluated and compared. Both a-V2O5 and c-V2O5 can store over 150 mAh/g of the Li+ ion in activated carbon (AC)/V2O5 cells, however, Mg2+ ion cannot be stored in both a-V2O5 and c-V2O5 in the first cycle. But, the specific capacity of a-V2O5 gradually increases up to 180 mAh/g after the 10th cycle, whereas c-V2O5 cannot react continuously. Therefore, the a-V2O5, which has a large specific capacity and high reaction voltage, can be a good candidate as a host material for MRBs because its amorphous structure has the advantage of the multi-valent ion storage.

  • Effects of Different Atmosphere on Electrochemical Performance of Hard
           Carbon Electrode in Sodium Ion Battery
    • Abstract: Hard carbon is deemed to be a most promising anode materials for sodium—ion batteries (SIBs), while, the issues of low capacity and low initial coulombic efficiency still exist limiting the development of SIBs. Although high temperature carbonization of biomass materials under nitrogen or argon atmosphere is a common method for preparation of hard carbon, there are few reports about the effects of different protective atmospheres on propriety of hard carbon. In this article, hornet’s nest (HN) is used to prepare hard carbon under nitrogen and argon. At a suitable carbonization temperature (1200 °C and 1400 °C), the hard carbon under argon possesses lower specific surface area (25–50 cm−3 g−1), but higher initial coulomb efficiency (4–6%) and higher capacity retention (3–6%). Thus, it is inferred that high—performance hard carbon can be obtained under argon atmosphere. Our research about the effect of sintering atmosphere on material properties is expected to provide a reference for the synthetization of hard carbon by high temperature carbonization. Graphical

  • Study on Electrochemical Performance of Various Oxides-Coated LiNi 0.5 Mn
           1.5 O 4 Cathode for Lithium Ion Battery
    • Abstract: In this study, LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 was prepared by solid-state synthesis method and MgCO3, Al2O3, SiO2, TiO2 were dry-coated on the surface of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4. The structure and geometry of pure-LNMO and coated-LNMO were characterized by XRD, SEM, SEM–EDS. Dry coating method was applied and various coating materials were evaluated in terms of the stability study at room/high temperature and electrochemical property. The results of XRD and SEM–EDS demonstrated that MgCO3, Al2O3, SiO2, TiO2 were coated on the LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 surface without any structural changes. Compared with pure-LNMO, the coated-LNMO shows significant decrease in side-reaction with electrolyte solution at the first cycle of the electrochemical test. In addition, coated-LNMO displays prominent thermal-stability at 25 °C and 55 °C and high c-rate, compared with pure-LNMO. Especially the coating layer of SiO2 inhibits the side-reaction with electrolyte solution induced by initial moisture formation. Therefore, the stability of capacity is significantly improved at the temperature of 55 °C and high c-rate, which are same results with those obtained by the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy results. This study has employed solid-state synthesis and dry coating method for the evaluation of various coated-LNMO materials and demonstrated the possibility to develop new high energy density electrode materials by surface modification.

  • Quantitative Analysis on Cellular Uptake of Clustered Ferrite Magnetic
    • Abstract: Due to their ability to be internalized into cells by endocytosis through cell membranes, the application of nanoparticles in therapeutic and diagnostic fields has received much interest. In particular, ferrite magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) are widely used as reagents for medical care, including in vitro magnetic separation, T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic hyperthermia therapy, and as drug delivery systems. However, little is known about the quantitative analysis of the cellular uptake of MNPs by the interaction of particle surfaces with biomolecules. Here, we quantitatively analyze the intracellular uptakes of 30 nm Fe- and Mn-ferrite MNPs. We confirm that the magnetic properties of MNPs change according to their microstructure and quantitatively analyze nanoparticle internalization in breast cell lines (MCF10A, MCF7, and MDA-MB-231) by measuring the magnetic moment using a vibrating sample magnetometer. Finally, we examine the effect of nanoparticle microstructure on cellular uptake in terms of the interaction between the nanoparticles and biomolecules. Graphical

  • A Hybrid Energy Storage Mechanism of Zinc Hexacyanocobaltate-Based
           Metal–Organic Framework Endowing Stationary and High-Performance
           Lithium-Ion Storage
    • Abstract: Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are considered to be theoretically promising with regard to large-scale energy storage and conversion systems. However, a significant problem is the lack of cost-efficient high-performance cathode materials for LIBs. In this study, we demonstrate a Prussian blue analog, zinc hexacyanocobaltate (ZnHCCo), as the low-cost and high-performance cathode material for LIBs. The open-framework crystal structure of ZnHCCo contributes toward reversible cation insertion and extraction along with the spontaneous valence change of hosts. Specifically, the as-prepared ZnHCCo exhibits a highly reversible capacity of 121.5 mAh g−1 at a current density of 1.25 C, a superior rate capability of 60.5 mAh g−1 at 6.25 C, and a stable cycling stability with a Coulombic efficiency of 96.5%. Therefore, the well-crystallized and low-cost ZnHCCo is expected to be a potential cathode material for LIBs used in grid-scale energy storage and conversion systems. In addition, the synthesis process of the electrode material can be readily up scaled using the earth abundant and environmentally benign precursors via a room-temperature wet-chemical method.

  • Printed Water-Based ITO Nanoparticle via Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) Jet
           Printing and Its Application of ZnO Transistors
    • Abstract: An electrohydrodynamic jet (EHD) printing process was optimized for the patterning of an indium tin oxide (ITO) nanoparticles ink by manipulating its surface tension through the addition of a nonionic surfactant, Triton X-100 (TX-100). As a result, a stable cone-jet mode was performed, which could provide printed drops with the smallest diameter and printing fidelity among EHD jet printing modes, and lead to a line width ranging from 230 µm to 30 µm in addition to well-define patterns with various shapes for ITO transparent conducting electrodes (TCEs). The multi-printing technique and subsequent thermal annealing for printed ITO TCEs allows improvement in its electrical conductivity. In addition, the evolution of the chemical composition and crystalline structure of the printed ITO TCE according to the annealing temperature was investigated to determine the optimal conditions to utilize printed ITO nanoparticles for ZnO-based thin-film transistors.

           Superconductor Films Stored in Low Vacuum
    • Abstract: Nb is a very popular material in superconductive electronic devices such as superconducting single-photon detectors and radio-frequency (RF) cavities for particle accelerators. Before MgB2 can be used as a substitute material, the stability of its properties over time must be confirmed. We studied how ageing over a period of 514 weeks affected the microwave surface resistance (RS) and the normal-state resistivity (ρ) of epitaxially-grown MgB2 films. MgB2 films with thicknesses of 1.0 μm and 1.7 μm were prepared using the hybrid physical CVD method, and exhibited a critical temperature (TC) of 39 K. They were stored in low-vacuum to prevent reactions with humidity, except when the films were taken out of storage for measurement purposes. Variation in RS with the ageing period appeared to be significant at very low temperatures. The RS values of 1.0 μm-thick and 1.7 μm-thick MgB2 films increased by ~ 8 times and ~ 3 times, respectively, over ~ 10 years. The aged MgB2 films appeared to have reduced π-band gap energy values. The pristine MgB2 films value of 2.3 meV was reduced to 1.3–1.7 meV over ~ 10 years. The TC of the MgB2 films remained almost the same regardless of the ageing time. The enhanced RS and ρ in the aged MgB2 films were attributed to increased intraband scattering within the π-band and the σ-band. Graphical

  • Formation Mechanism of Novel Sidewall Intermetallic Compounds in Micron
           Level Sn/Ni/Cu Bumps
    • Abstract: A new kind of intermetallic compounds (IMC) were found around copper pillar in micron level bumps. To investigate the formation mechanism, three different sized Sn/Ni/Cu bumps (10 μm, 20 μm, 50 μm) were electroplated then reflowed at 230 °C for 100 s. After reflow process, a thin layer of IMC was formed around copper pillar, which is attributed to surface wetting behavior. After aging at 170 °C and 200 °C for different times, the growth mechanism of sidewall IMC was observed by scanning electron microscopy combined with electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technology. Surface diffusion was considered to be the main driving force for sidewall IMC growth for the activation energy of them was found to be much smaller than that in previous studies. The EBSD results showed a preferred orientation of sidewall Cu3Sn grains <100> being perpendicular to copper periphery, which indicated direction of Cu atoms flux during Cu3Sn growth. Formation mechanism of this novel sidewall IMC was proposed based on surface wetting and surface diffusion. The findings contribute to the failure mechanism study in small size bumps and provide insights into the reliability of 3D electronic packaging. Graphic

  • Titanium(III) Sulfide Nanoparticles Coated with Multicomponent Oxide
           (Ti–S–O) as a Conductive Polysulfide Scavenger for Lithium–Sulfur
    • Abstract: In spite of the high specific capacity and energy density of Li–S batteries based on low-cost sulfur as the active material, their practical use has not yet been realized due to the undesirable formation of soluble polysulfides (PS) during electrochemical cycles and their shuttling effect. In order to minimize this serious issue caused by the active material dissolution, transition metal compounds such as oxides, nitrides, and sulfides have alternatively been used to capture the PS and also to provide electron pathways in the S electrode. However, high-performance additive materials having both high affinity to PS and high electronic conductivity have not been developed thus far. Herein, we report the preparation and application of a new additive material—titanium(III) sulfide (Ti2S3) nanoparticles covered with multicomponent (Ti–S–O) oxide (MO–Ti2S3), which can be synthesized on a large scale using an inductively-coupled thermal plasma synthesis method followed by a simple surface oxidation treatment. MO–Ti2S3 shows much higher PS affinity than other titanium compounds and electronic conductivity that is comparable to that of carbon black. Furthermore, MO–Ti2S3 shows much higher resistance to heat and oxidation while having charge–discharge stability when compared with TiS2. Finally, we show that the cyclability and specific capacity of the Li–S battery can be significantly enhanced by incorporating MO–Ti2S3 in the cathode when compared to utilizing C species. Graphical

  • The Effect of Pulse Electrodeposition of Bismuth on Electrochemical
           Reduction of Carbon Dioxide to Formate
    • Abstract: Efficient electrochemical reduction of CO2 to formate is demonstrated by fabricating Bi nanoflake with pulse electrodeposition. The effect of pulse voltage on morphology of the Bi nanoflake and electrochemical property was investigated. The pulse voltage of 80 mVAg/AgCl with six pulse cycles successfully produces ultrathin Bi nanoflakes. The finite-element-based simulation shows that the two-dimensional geometry with large lateral dimensions and ultrathin thickness can localize a strong electric field at the corner site of the flakes, resulting in facilitating efficient reduction of CO2 to formate. As a result, formate Faradaic efficiency of the Bi nanoflakes showed over 90% at − 0.8 VRHE. Also, the formate production rate reached 69 µmol/cm2/h at − 0.8 VRHE. The pulse electrodeposition provides highly dense and uniform and tailored nanostructures in the large area without the requirements of high vacuum or high temperatures process. Graphical

  • Facile Fabrication of MCo 2 S 4 (M = Mn, Ni) Nanotube Arrays for
           High-Performance Supercapacitors
    • Abstract: MCo2S4(M = Mn, Ni) nanomaterials are attracting considerable attention because of their unique nanostructure, good redox properties, excellent theoretical capacitance, low cost and easy preparation. Herein, MCo2S4(M = Mn, Ni) nanotube arrays have been fabricated by a one-pot hydrothermal method and could be used as conductive additive and binder-free electrodes for supercapacitors. The results show that the specific capacitance of MCo2S4(M = Mn or Ni) nanotube arrays could reach as high as 2667 and 1623 F/g at the current density of 10 A/g, respectively, indicating high rate performance. Furthermore, the MnCo2S4 nanotube arrays exhibited excellent cycling stability (68% of initial specific capacitance after 1800 cycles). These excellent electrochemical properties benefit from the synergistic effects of unique tubular microstructure and high conductivity of the samples.
