Detection of explosives with a fluorescent nanofibril film.
A new type of fluorescence sensory material has been developed from an alkoxycarbonyl-substituted carbazole-cornered tetracycle, which facilitates long-range exciton migration and favors adsorption and diffusion of gaseous adsorbates within the film. Expand
Large gate modulation in the current of a room temperature single molecule transistor.
A single molecule field effect transistor (FET) which consists of a redox molecule covalently bonded to a source and drain electrode and an electrochemical gate is demonstrated, in the fashion of an n-type FET. Expand
Ultraselective fluorescent sensing of Hg2+ through metal coordination-induced molecular aggregation.
A new type of fluorescent sensor has been developed from a perylene based molecule, N,N'-dideoxythymidine-3,4,9,10-perylene-tetracarboxylic diimide (TT-PTCDI), which enables efficient sensing of mercury ions based on a fluorescence quenching mechanism. Expand
Spin-enhanced organic bulk heterojunction photovoltaic solar cells.
A novel method to suppress polaron pair recombination at the donor-acceptor domain interfaces and thus improve the organic photovoltaic solar cell efficiency, by doping the device active layer with spin 1/2 radical galvinoxyl. Expand
Morphology control of nanofibril donor-acceptor heterojunction to achieve high photoconductivity: exploration of new molecular design rule.
The results reported in this study give further insight into the molecular structural effect on photoconductivity of hybrid materials, particularly those based on donor-acceptor composites or interfaces, and provide new molecular design rules and material processing guidelines to achieve high photoc conductivity.
