A simple one-step and gram-scale synthesis of [Au5Mes5] from AuCl3 was developed, and this molecular precursor was used to generate Au nanoparticles on SiO2 and Al2O3. While [Au5Mes5] does not react with surface silanols and is only physisorbed, its incipient...

We demonstrated a promising route for enhancing temperature sensitivity, improving saturation voltage, and reducing power consumption of the MOS(p) tunneling temperature sensors by introducing ultrathin Al2O3 into the dielectric stacks. Detailed illustrations of the working mechanism and device concept are...

Glass formation in the CaO-Al2O3 system represents an important phenomenon because it does not contain typical network-forming cations. We have produced structural models of CaO-Al2O3 glasses using combined density functional theory-reverse Monte Carlo simulations and obtained structures that reproduce experiments...

Solution dispersions of two-dimensional (2D) black phosphorus (BP)--often referred to as phosphorene--are achieved by solvent exfoliation. These pristine, electronic-grade BP dispersions are produced with anhydrous organic solvents in a sealed-tip ultrasonication system, which circumvents BP degradation that would otherwise occur...
