Hydration of a side-chain-free n-type ladder semiconducting polymer driven by electrochemical doping

January 11, 2023
Jiajie Guo, Lucas Flagg, Duyen Tran, Shinya Chen, Ruipeng Li, Nagesh Kolhe, Rajiv Giridharagopal, Samson A. Jenekhe, Lee J. Richter, David Ginger
We study the organic electrochemical transistor (OECTs) performance of the ladder polymer, poly(benzimidazobenzophenanthroline) (BBL) in an attempt to better understand how an apparently insoluble side-chain free polymer is able to operate as an OECT with

Micro- and Nanoscale Surface Analysis of Late Iron Age Glass from Broborg, a Vitrified Swedish Hillfort

January 11, 2023
Bethany Matthews, James Neeway, Lorena Nava Farias, Jose Marcial, Bruce Arey, Jennifer Soltis, LiBor Kovarik, Zihua Zhu, Michael Schweiger, Nathan Canfield, Tamas Varga, Mark Bowden, Jamie Weaver, John McCloy, Rolf Sjoblom, Eva Hjarthner-Holdar, Mia Englund, Erik Ogenhall, Edward Vicenzi, Claire Corkhill, Clare Thorpe, Russell Hand, David Peeler, Carolyn Pearce, Albert Kruger
Archaeological glasses with prolonged exposure to biogeochemical processes in the environment can be used to understand glass alteration, which is important for the safe disposal of vitrified nuclear waste. Samples of mafic and felsic glasses with

All-Temperature Zinc Batteries with High-Entropy Aqueous Electrolyte

January 9, 2023
Chongyin Yang, Jiale Xia, Chunyu Cui, Travis P. Pollard, Jenel Vatamanu, Antonio Faraone, Joseph Dura, Madhu Sudan N. Tyagi, Alex Kattan, Elijah Thimsen, Jijian Xu, Wentao Song, Enyuan Hu, Xiao Ji, Singyuk Hou, Xiyue Zhang, Michael S. Ding, Sooyeon Hwang, Dong Su, Yang Ren, Xiao-Qing Yang, Howard Wang, Oleg Borodin, Chunsheng Wang
Solvent-in-salt electrolytes have revolutionized both aqueous and non-aqueous batteries by extending the electrochemical stability window1,2,3 and enabling new battery chemisties4-6. However, the presence of both anions and solvent in the cation solvation

Measuring Dimensionality of Cell-Scaffold Contacts of Primary Human Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Cultured on Electrospun Fiber Scaffolds

January 1, 2023
Carl Simon Jr., Peter Bajcsy, Joe Chalfoun, Michael Paul Majurski, Mary C. Brady, Mylene Simon, Nathan Hotaling, Nick Schaub, Allison Horenberg, Piotr Szczypinski, Dongbo Wang, Veronica DeFelice, Soweon Yoon, Stephanie Florczyk
The properties and structure of the cellular microenvironment can influence cell behavior. Sites of cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix (ECM) initiate intracellular signaling that direct cell functions such as proliferation, differentiation and

Mechanism of Bismuth Stimulated Bottom-up Gold Feature Filling

December 30, 2022
Daniel Josell, Trevor Braun, Thomas P. Moffat
The mechanism that underlies 〖Bi〗^(3+)-stimulated extreme bottom-up Au filling of trenches and vias in slightly alkaline 〖Na〗_3 Au(〖SO〗_3 )_2+〖Na〗_2 〖SO〗_3 electrolytes is explored. The remarkable void-free feature filling and self-passivation behavior

Analysis of Strain Correction Procedures for Single Fiber Tensile Testing

December 29, 2022
Amy Engelbrecht-Wiggans, Amanda L. Forster
Accurate strain measurement for single fibers is critical for many engineering applications. Typically, the crosshead displacement is used to calculate strain when performing mechanical testing, however there are complicating factors: slack in the specimen

Symmetry-dependent ultrafast manipulation of nanoscale magnetic domains

December 23, 2022
Nanna Hagstrom, Rahul Jangid, F. N. U. Meera, Diego Turenne, Jeffrey Brock, Erik Lamb, Boyan Stoychev, Justine Schlappa, Natalia Gerasimova, Benjamin Van Kuiken, Rafael Gort, Laurent Mercadier, Loic Le Guyader, Andrey Samartsev, Andreas Scherz, Giuseppe Mercurio, Hermann Durr, Alexander Reid, Monika Arora, Hans Nembach, Justin Shaw, Emmanuelle Jal, Eric Fullerton, Mark Keller, Roopali Kukreja, Stefano Bonetti, Thomas J. Silva, Ezio Iacocca
Symmetry is a powerful concept in physics, but its applicability to far-from-equilibrium states is still being understood. Recent attention has focused on how far-from-equilibrium states lead to spontaneous symmetry breaking. Conversely, ultrafast optical

Probing Accelerated Salt-Induced Relaxation Dynamics of Laponite Suspensions Using X-Ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy Measurements and Molecular Dynamics Simulations

December 22, 2022
Sohaib Mohammed, Meishen Liu, Qingteng Zhang, Suresh Narayanan, Fan Zhang, Greeshma Gadikota
Linking the physics of the relaxation behavior of visco-elastic fluids as they form arrested gel states to the underlying nano-scale structure and energetic interactions is essential for developing predictive controls. In this study, laponite suspensions

The Impact of Carbon Nanotube Length and Diameter on their Global Alignment by Dead-End Filtration

December 22, 2022
Christopher Rust, Pavel Shapturenka, Manuel Spari, Andreas Bacher, Qihao Jin, Han Li, Markus Guttmann, Ming Zheng, Tehseen Adel, Angela R. Hight Walker, Jeffrey Fagan, Benjamin Flavel
Dead-end filtration on polyvinylpyrrolidone-coated polycarbonate track-etched membranes has proven to be an effective method to prepare macroscopically (3.8 cm²) aligned thin films from solution-based single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). However, to make

Crystallization Kinetics in an Immiscible Polyolefin Blend

December 12, 2022
Derek Huang, Anthony Kotula, Chad R. Snyder, Kalman Migler
Motivated by the problem of brittle mechanical behavior in recycled blends of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and isotactic polypropylene (iPP), we employ optical microscopy, rheo-Raman, and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) to measure the

2D honeycomb transformation into dodecagonal quasicrystals driven by electrostatic forces

December 7, 2022
Sebastian Schenk, Oliver Krahn, Eric J. Cockayne, Holger Meyerheim, Marc de Boissieu, Stefan Foerster, Wolf Widdra
Dodecagonal oxide quasicrystals are well established as examples of long range aperiodic order in two dimensions. However, despite investigations by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), low-energy electron microscopy
