The properties of graphene can vary as a function of the number of layers (NOL). Controlling the NOL in large area graphene is still challenging. In this work, we demonstrate a picosecond (ps) laser thinning removal of graphene layers from multi-layered graphene to obtain desired NOL when appropriate pulse threshold energy is adopted. The thinning process(More)
This research presents a simple and efficient method to synthesize porous nitrogen-doped carbon microspheres (PNCM) by the carbonization of microporous poly(terephthalaldehyde-pyrrole) organic frameworks (PtpOF). The common KOH activation process is used to tune the porous texture of the PNCM and produce an activated-PNCM (A-PNCM). The PNCM and A-PNCM with(More)
Functional metal surfaces with minimum optical reflection over a broadband spectrum have essential importance for optical and optoelectronic devices. However, the intrinsically large optical impedance mismatch between metals and the free space causes a huge obstacle in achieving such a purpose. We propose and experimentally demonstrate a general pulse(More)
Hydrogen production from water based on photoelectrochemical (PEC) reactions is feasible to solve the urgent energy crisis. Herein, hierarchical 3D self-supporting WO3 micro-nano architectures in situ grown on W plates are successfully fabricated via ultrafast laser processing hybrid with thermal oxidation. Owing to the large surface area and efficient(More)
