    • Printable, high-performance solid-state electrolyte films 

      Ping, Weiwei; Wang, Chengwei; Wang, Ruiliu; Dong, Qi; Lin, Zhiwei; Brozena, Alexandra H.; Dai, Jiaqi; Luo, Jian; Hu, Liangbing (AAAS, 2020-11-18)
      Current ceramic solid-state electrolyte (SSE) films have low ionic conductivities (10−8 to 10−5 S/cm ), attributed to the amorphous structure or volatile Li loss. Herein, we report a solution-based printing process followed ...
    • Tuning the hysteresis of a metal-insulator transition via lattice compatibility 

      Liang, Y. G.; Lee, S.; Yu, H. S.; Zhang, H. R.; Liang, Y. J.; Zavalij, P. Y.; Chen, X.; James, R. D.; Bendersky, L. A.; Davydov, A. V.; Zhang, X. H.; Takeuchi, I. (Springer Nature, 2020-07-15)
      Structural phase transitions serve as the basis for many functional applications including shape memory alloys (SMAs), switches based on metal-insulator transitions (MITs), etc. In such materials, lattice incompatibility ...
    • Unsupervised discovery of solid-state lithium ion conductors 

      Zhang, Ying; He, Xingfeng; Chen, Zhiqian; Bai, Qiang; Nolan, Adelaide M.; Roberts, Charles A.; Banerjee, Debasish; Matsunaga, Tomoya; Mo, Yifei; Ling, Chen (Springer Nature, 2019-11-20)
      Although machine learning has gained great interest in the discovery of functional materials, the advancement of reliable models is impeded by the scarcity of available materials property data. Here we propose and demonstrate ...
    • Single-digit-micrometer thickness wood speaker 

      Gan, Wentao; Chen, Chaoji; Kim, Hyun-Tae; Lin, Zhiwei; Dai, Jiaqi; Dong, Zhihua; Zhou, Zhan; Ping, Weiwei; He, Shuaiming; Xiao, Shaoliang; Yu, Miao; Hu, Liangbing (Springer Nature, 2019-11-08)
      Thin films of several microns in thickness are ubiquitously used in packaging, electronics, and acoustic sensors. Here we demonstrate that natural wood can be directly converted into an ultrathin film with a record-small ...
    • Statistical variances of diffusional properties from ab initio molecular dynamics simulations 

      He, Xingfeng; Zhu, Yizhou; Epstein, Alexander; Mo, Yifei (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-04-03)
      Ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) simulation is widely employed in studying diffusion mechanisms and in quantifying diffusional properties of materials. However, AIMD simulations are often limited to a few hundred atoms ...
