Due to its high carrier mobility, broadband absorption, and fast response time, the semi-metallic graphene is attractive for optoelectronics. Another two-dimensional semiconducting material molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is also known as light- sensitive. Here we show that a large-area and continuous MoS2 monolayer is achievable using a CVD method and graphene(More)
Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) such as molybdenum sulfide MoS2 and tungsten sulfide WSe2 have potential applications in electronics because they exhibit high on-off current ratios and distinctive electro-optical properties. Spatially connected TMDC lateral heterojunctions are key components for constructing monolayer p-n rectifying(More)
Two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides have emerged as a promising material system for optoelectronic applications, but their primary figure of merit, the room-temperature photoluminescence quantum yield (QY), is extremely low. The prototypical 2D material molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is reported to have a maximum QY of 0.6%, which indicates a(More)
A novel strategy employing core-shell nanowire arrays (NWAs) consisting of Si/regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) was demonstrated to facilitate efficient light harvesting and exciton dissociation/charge collection for hybrid solar cells (HSCs). We experimentally demonstrate broadband and omnidirectional light-harvesting characteristics of core-shell(More)
When light is incident on 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), it engages in multiple reflections within underlying substrates, producing interferences that lead to enhancement or attenuation of the incoming and outgoing strength of light. Here, we report a simple method to engineer the light outcoupling in semiconducting TMDCs by modulating their(More)
A plasma-polymerized acrylonitrile (PP-AN)/ZnO nanobelt (NB) nanosensor reveals a better oxygen-sensing response than a bare ZnO NB nanosensor due to the sorption nature of the polymer. With the aid of UV light, significant response enhancements of PP-AN/ZnO NB nanosensors at low temperature have been observed since the effects of oxygen(More)
We demonstrated a flexible strain sensor based on ZnSnO(3) nanowires/microwires for the first time. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy indicates that the ZnSnO(3) belongs to a rhombohedral structure with an R3c space group and is grown along the [001] axis. On the basis of our experimental observation and theoretical calculation, the(More)
Slope-tunable Si nanorod arrays (NRAs) were fabricated with colloidal lithography and reactive ion etching (RIE). Sharpened NRAs fabricated by increasing the SF6/O2 flow ratio during RIE exhibit enhanced antireflection (AR) and hydrophobic properties, which are attributed to the smooth gradient in the effective refractive index of NRAs, and the enlarged(More)
BACKGROUND Effect of gravity on heart rate and blood pressure are well documented but the effect of posture on R-wave amplitude has not been studied. AIM To investigate the effect of posture on the heart rate (HR) and R-wave amplitude (RWA). METHODS The electrocardiograph (ECG) was recorded in 20 young subjects on two occasions. A 5 minute recording of(More)
| A ZnO-based transparent resistance random access memory (TRRAM) employs atomic layered graphene exhibiting not only excellent transparency (less than 2% absorptance by graphene) but also reversible resistive switching characteristics. The statistical analysis including cycle-to-cycle and cell-to-cell tests for almost 100 cells shows that graphene plays a(More)
