Thin-film photovoltaics based on alkylammonium lead iodide perovskite light absorbers have recently emerged as a promising low-cost solar energy harvesting technology. To date, the perovskite layer in these efficient solar cells has generally been fabricated by either vapor deposition or a two-step sequential deposition process. We report that flat, uniform(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the adrenocortical function in children with severe and critical enterovirus 71 infection by using a high-dose (250 µg) adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) stimulation test. And to at provide experimental basis for glucocorticoid in the treatment of hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD). METHOD This was a prospective multi-center study(More)
Monodisperse mesoporous anatase titania beads with high surface areas and tunable pore size and grain diameter have been prepared through a combined sol-gel and solvothermal process in the presence of hexadecylamine (HDA) as a structure-directing agent. The monodispersity of the resultant titania beads, along with the spherical shape, can be controlled by(More)
Dye-sensitized solar cells employing mesoporous TiO(2) beads have demonstrated longer electron diffusion lengths and extended electron lifetimes over Degussa P25 titania electrodes due to the well interconnected, densely packed nanocrystalline TiO(2) particles inside the beads. Careful selection of the dye to match the dye photon absorption characteristics(More)
Organolead triiodide perovskite (CH3NH3PbI3) as a light-sensitive material has attracted extensive attention in optoelectronics. The reported perovskite photodetectors (PDs) mainly focus on the individual, which limits their spatial imaging applications. Uniform perovskite networks combining transparency and device performance were synthesized on(More)
We present an investigation on a power pack combining a CH3NH3PbI3-based solar cell with a polypyrrole-based supercapacitor and evaluate its performance as an energy pack. The package achieved an energy storage efficiency of 10%, which is much higher than that of other systems combining a PV cell with a supercapacitor. We find a high output voltage of 1.45(More)
Mesoporous TiO₂ beads with diameters of 320±50, 550±50, and 830±40 nm, comprising interconnected and densely packed TiO₂ nanocrystals, were used as working electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). These electrodes possess high surface areas and superior light-scattering properties, which are ideal for DSC applications. Although the electrode(More)
The past 2 years have seen the uniquely rapid emergence of a new class of solar cell based on mixed organic-inorganic halide perovskite. Grain boundaries are present in polycrystalline thin film solar cell, and they play an important role that could be benign or detrimental to solar-cell performance. Here we present efficient charge separation and(More)
