In lithium-ion batteries, the electrochemical reaction between the electrodes and lithium is a critical process that controls the capacity, cyclability and reliability of the battery. Despite intensive study, the atomistic mechanism of the electrochemical reactions occurring in these solid-state electrodes remains unclear. Here, we show that in situ(More)
The electron emission of position-controlled grown ZnO nanoflowers was investigated for application in cold cathode electron emission devices. ZnO nanoflower arrays, composed of several nanoneedles with sharp tips, were grown selectively on a conducting glass substrate using a chemical solution deposition method. The morphology and position of the ZnO(More)
New discoveries on collective processes in materials fabrication and performance are emerging in the mesoscopic size regime between the nanoscale, where atomistic effects dominate, and the macroscale, where bulk-like behavior rules. For semiconductor electronics and photonics, dimensional control of the architecture in this regime is the limiting factor for(More)
Highly efficient solid-state light-emitting devices require semiconductor architectures equipped with high quantum efficiency and integratability on conductive substrates. Surface plasmon (SP)-mediated luminescence enhancement has been considered as one of the most promising solutions, because SP resonance can greatly improve the radiative recombination(More)
Safe and efficient operation of lithium ion batteries requires precisely directed flow of lithium ions and electrons to control the first directional volume changes in anode and cathode materials. Understanding and controlling the lithium ion transport in battery electrodes becomes crucial to the design of high performance and durable batteries. Recent work(More)
Integration of nanostructure lighting source arrays with well-defined emission wavelengths is of great importance for optoelectronic integrated monolithic circuitry. We report on the fabrication and optical properties of GaN-based p-n junction multishell nanotube microarrays with composition-modulated nonpolar m-plane InxGa1-xN/GaN multiple quantum wells(More)
Controlling the transport of lithium (Li) ions and their reaction with electrodes is central in the design of Li-ion batteries for achieving high capacity, high rate, and long lifetime. The flexibility in composition and structure enabled by tailoring electrodes at the nanoscale could drastically change the ionic transport and help meet new levels of Li-ion(More)
ZnO/Zn0.8Mg0.2O coaxial nanorod heterostructures were prepared by employing catalyst-free metal-organic vapor-phase epitaxy, and their structural and photoluminescent (PL) properties were investigated using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and temperature-dependent PL spectroscopy. TEM images show that ZnO/Zn0.8Mg0.2O layers were epitaxially grown on(More)
Thin high-quality gallium nitride (GaN) nanowires were synthesized by a catalytic chemical vapor deposition method. The synthesized GaN nanowires with hexagonal single-crystalline structure had thin diameters of 10-50 nm and lengths of tens of micrometers. The thin GaN nanowires revealed UV bands at 3.481 and 3.285 eV in low-temperature PL measurements due(More)
