Structured light three-dimensional (3D) imaging technology captures the geometric information on 3D objects by recording waves reflected from the objects' surface. The projection angle and point number of the laser dots directly determine the field-of-view (FOV) and the resolution of the reconstructed image. Conventionally, diffractive optical elements with micrometer-scale pixel size have been used to generate laser dot arrays, leading to limited FOV and point number within the projection optical path. Here, we theoretically put forward and experimentally demonstrate a monocular geometric phase metasurface composed of deep subwavelength meta-atoms to generate a 10 798 dot array within an FOV of 163°...

An efficient interface and composition modification strategy is proposed to significantly increase the rate capacity and initial Coulombic efficiency (ICE) of SnO anodes via energy band structure modulation for Na-ion batteries (SIBs). The as-fabricated SnO@Bi@C material with Bi nanocrystals homogeneously dispersed on and around the SnO surface is prepared by an electrospinning method. The excellently dispersed Bi nanocrystals realize an effective interface contact with SnO and Na2 O, which effectively lowers the electron conduction barriers and promotes sodium-ion release and transport upon the desodiation process, increasing the rate capacity and ICE of the SnO anode...

The lithium-rich manganese-based layer oxide (LRMO) with high specific capacity (∼300 mAh g-1 ) and economic feasibility is accepted as the cathode material for high energy density rechargeable batteries. Accompanied by the additional anionic redox reactions during the initial charging process, LRMO presents oxygen release, sluggish Li+ diffusion, and irreversible transition metal ion (TM) migration, which is responsible for its severe structural deterioration and rapid capacity/voltage decay. Here, the N doping strategy is proposed via feasible treatment of oxygen-vacancy-containing Li1...

The iontronic tactile sensing modality has garnered significant attention due to its exceptional sensitivity, immunity to noise, and versatility in materials. Recently, various formats of iontronic tactile sensors have been developed, including droplets, polymer films, paper, ionic gels, and fabrics. However, the stretchability of the current iontronic pressure sensing fabric is inadequate, hindered by the limited stretchiness of the ionic functional fabric. Incorporating a stretchable tactile sensing implement could enhance the wear comfortability by preventing relative movement and ensuring intimate contact between the sensor and the skin...

In vitro three-dimensional (3D) models are better able to replicate the complexity of real organs and tissues than 2D monolayer models. The human endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus, undergoes complex changes during the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. These changes occur in response to steroid hormone fluctuations and elicit crosstalk between the epithelial and stromal cell compartments, and dysregulations are associated with a variety of pregnancy disorders. Despite the importance of the endometrium in embryo implantation and pregnancy establishment, there is a lack of in vitro models that recapitulate tissue structure and function and as such a growing demand for extracellular matrix hydrogels that can support 3D cell culture...

For chronic wounds, frequent replacement of bandages not only increases the likelihood of secondary damage and the risk of cross infection but also wastes medication. Therefore, in situ real-time monitoring of the concentrations of residual drugs in bandages is crucial. Here, we propose a novel strategy that combines a triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) with medical bandages to develop a smart bandage based on zeolite imidazolate framework TENG. During the process of wound healing, the electrical output of TENG changes with the continuous release of drugs...

The cubic α-CsPbI3 phase stands out as one of the most promising perovskite compounds for solar cell applications due to its suitable electronic band gap of 1.7 eV. However, it exhibits structural instability under operational conditions, often transforming into the hexagonal non-perovskite δ-CsPbI3 phase, which is unsuitable for solar cell applications because of the large band gap (e.g., ∼2.9 eV). Thus, there is growing interest in identifying possible mechanisms for increasing the stability of the cubic α-CsPbI3 phase...

Redox-active organic molecules have potential as electrode materials, but their cycling stability is often limited by the irreversible formation of σ-bonds from the radical intermediates. Herein, we present an effective approach to achieve high reversibility by using lone pair electrons to mediate intramolecular radical-radical coupling. Azatriangulenetrione ( 1 ) was examined as the anode in sodium-ion batteries, which displayed a reversible four-step, one-electron redox chemistry. In situ electron spin resonance, ex situ Fourier transform infrared/X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and density functional theory calculation revealed that the unstable radical anions can couple with each other through the lone pair electrons of the central nitrogen atom, leading to stabilized radical species...
