Using a vertical titania (TiO(2)) nanotube array, an inverted polymer solar cell was constructed with power conversion efficiency up to 2.71%. In this study, self-organized TiO(2) nanotubes arrays were grown by anodizing Ti metal in glycerol electrolyte containing 0.5 wt% NH(4)F and 1.0 wt% H(2)O with 20 V potential. The tube length (∼100 nm) was controlled(More)
By sputtering organic films with 10 kV, 10 nA C60+ and 0.2 kV, 300 nA Ar+ ion beams concurrently and analyzing the newly exposed surface with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, organic thin-film devices including an organic light-emitting diode and a polymer solar cell with an inverted structure are profiled. The chemical composition and the structure of(More)
Siloxane-anchored, self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on single crystal Si were prepared with a variety of surface functional groups using a single commercially available surfactant (1-bromo-11-(trichlorosilyl)undecane) followed by in situ transformations. Polar (thioacetate and thiol), nonpolar (methyl), acidic (sulfonic and carboxylic), basic (various(More)
Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) using pulsed C(60)(+) primary ions is a promising technique for analyzing biological specimens with high surface sensitivities. With molecular secondary ions of high masses, multiple molecules can be identified simultaneously without prior separation or isotope labeling. Previous reports using the(More)
A buckminsterfullerene (C(60)) ion beam was used for X-ray photoelectron spectrometry depth profiling of various organic thin films. Specimens representing different interfaces in organic light-emitting diode devices, including hole-conducting poly(ethylenedioxythiophene), poly(styrenesulfonic acid) (PEDOT:PSS) thin films on ITO with and without polysilicic(More)
We argue that the structure ordering of self-assembled probing molecular monolayers is essential for the reliability and sensitivity of nanowire-based field-effect sensors because it can promote the efficiency for molecular interactions as well as strengthen the molecular dipole field experienced by the nanowires. In the case of monolayers, we showed that(More)
Trifunctional uniform nanoparticles comprising a manganese nanocrystal core and a functionalized mesoporous silica shell (MnO@mSiO(2)(Ir)@PEG, where Ir is an emissive iridium complex and PEG is polyethylene glycol) have been strategically designed and synthesized. The T(1) signal can be optimized by forming hollow core (H-MnO@mSiO(2)(Ir)@PEG) via a novel(More)
In response to the growing need for metal oxide nanotubes and nanowires for nanoelectronic applications, polycrystalline titanate nanotubes are synthesized in this work at near-ambient conditions without the application of an external electric field or pre-existing solids. Nanotubes of complicated metal oxides including strontium titanate and barium(More)
Organic fluorescent nanoparticles, excitation-dependent photoluminescence, hydrogen-bonded clusters and lysobisphosphatidic acid are four interesting individual topics in materials and biological sciences. They have attracted much attention not only because of their unique properties and important applications, but also because the nature of their(More)
Here we demonstrated an approach to increase performance of P3HT:TiO2 solar cell either by electron deficient boron or electron rich bismuth doping into TiO2 nanorods. The B doping increases the absorption, crystallinity and electron mobility of TiO2 nanorods. The Bi-doped TiO2 has higher J(sc) as compared with B-doped TiO2, mainly due to the improvement of(More)
