Observing Sample Dynamics Using In-Situ EELS and Heating

This webinar introduces the types of information you can obtain using in-situ EELS. Practical examples are shown by reviewing published in-situ EELS work as well as unpublished videos obtained using the GIF Quantum® K2®IS system from Gatan.

Organic solar cells based on non-fullerene acceptors    pp119 - 128
Jianhui Hou, Olle Inganäs, Richard H. Friend & Feng Gao



Sub-nanometre channels embedded in two-dimensional materials    pp129 - 133
Yimo Han, Ming-Yang Li, Gang-Seob Jung, Mark A. Marsalis, Zhao Qin et al.
Coherent 1D MoS2 channels, which are free of dangling bonds and dislocations, can be fabricated in monolayer WSe2, driven by dislocations at the interface of the two materials.

Ultralow-loss polaritons in isotopically pure boron nitride    pp134 - 139
Alexander J. Giles, Siyuan Dai, Igor Vurgaftman, Timothy Hoffman, Song Liu et al.
Isotopic enrichment in hexagonal boron nitride is shown to enhance the propagation properties of phonon polaritons, achieving a threefold enhancement in their lifetime.

Itamar Kolvin, Gil Cohen & Jay Fineberg
In brittle soft materials, topological defects determine fracture propagation and faceted patterning.

Nature Electronics — now live 

Nature Electronics publishes both fundamental and applied research across all areas of electronics, incorporating the work of scientists, engineers and industry. At its core, the journal is concerned with the development of new technologies and understanding the impact of these developments on society.

Topological order and thermal equilibrium in polariton condensates    pp145 - 151
Davide Caputo, Dario Ballarini, Galbadrakh Dagvadorj, Carlos Sánchez Muñoz, Milena De Giorgi et al.
The Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless transition is observed in a 2D gas of exciton-polaritons, through measurements of the first-order coherence both in space and time.

Isotope engineering of van der Waals interactions in hexagonal boron nitride    pp152 - 158
T. Q. P. Vuong, S. Liu, A. Van der Lee, R. Cuscó, L. Artús et al.
Isotope engineering in hexagonal boron nitride can affect its vibrational, electronic and optical properties due to the isotope substitution, as well as induce a change in the van der Waals interactions.

Programmed coherent coupling in a synthetic DNA-based excitonic circuit    pp159 - 166
Étienne Boulais, Nicolas P. D. Sawaya, Rémi Veneziano, Alessio Andreoni, James L. Banal et al.
Strongly interacting dye molecule complexes with coherent energy transport can be organized through programmable DNA scaffolds.

Safe and recyclable lithium-ion capacitors using sacrificial organic lithium salt    pp167 - 173
P. Jeżowski, O. Crosnier, E. Deunf, P. Poizot, F. Béguin et al.
Strategies to incorporate a lithium-cation source in lithium-ion capacitors have so far proved challenging. A sacrificial organic lithium salt is now shown to irreversibly provide lithium cations to a graphite electrode during the initial operando charging step without any negative effects.

A sol–gel monolithic metal–organic framework with enhanced methane uptake    pp174 - 179
Tian Tian, Zhixin Zeng, Diana Vulpe, Mirian E. Casco, Giorgio Divitini et al.
Using a sol–gel process, monoliths of metal–organic frameworks were fabricated. With an enhanced methane volumetric uptake of 259 cm3 (STP) cm-3, and robust mechanical properties, this meets technological targets.

Control of piezoelectricity in amino acids by supramolecular packing    pp180 - 186
Sarah Guerin, Aimee Stapleton, Drahomir Chovan, Rabah Mouras, Matthew Gleeson et al.
Proceeding from quantum mechanical predictions, a high shear piezoelectric constant of 178 pm V-1 was measured for the amino acid crystal beta glycine. This originates from the efficient packing of the molecules of the amino acid.

Exploiting the pliability and lateral mobility of Pickering emulsion for enhanced vaccination    pp187 - 194
Yufei Xia, Jie Wu, Wei Wei, Yiqun Du, Tao Wan et al.
Antigen pliability and lateral mobility in a Pickering emulsion adjuvant may be a safe and effective strategy to enhance adaptive immunity.
