Ultrahigh-performance transparent conductive films of carbon-welded isolated single-wall carbon nanotubes

Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are ideal for fabricating transparent conductive films because of their small diameter, good optical and electrical properties, and excellent flexibility. However, a high intertube Schottky junction resistance, together with the existence of aggregated bundles of SWCNTs, leads to a degraded optoelectronic performance of the films. We report a network of isolated SWCNTs prepared by an injection floating catalyst chemical vapor deposition method, in which crossed SWCNTs are welded together by graphitic carbon. Pristine SWCNT films show a record low sheet resistance of 41 ohm □−1 at 90% transmittance for 550-nm light. After HNO3 treatment, the sheet resistance further decreases to 25 ohm □−1. Organic light-emitting diodes using this SWCNT film as anodes demonstrate a low turn-on voltage of 2.5 V, a high current efficiency of 75 cd A−1, and excellent flexibility. Investigation of isolated SWCNT-based field-effect transistors shows that the carbon-welded joints convert the Schottky contacts between metallic and semiconducting SWCNTs into near-ohmic ones, which significantly improves the conductivity of the transparent SWCNT network. Our work prov...

The Prettiest $40 Dress Trend Women From All Over Are Wearing

I don’t know about you, but the one thing I want all my summer dresses to be is pretty. There’s nothing easier in the summer than throwing on a one-and-done dress that has enough interesting details to constitute its own outfit, and right now, ’80s-inspired bows are catching my eye the most. As we do with most trends that catch our eye, we designed our own version for our Who What Wear collection at Target, and based on the below outfit proof, it’s clearly been a hit. We’ve spotted women from all over gravitating toward the Bow Tie A-Line Dress, an easygoing sleeveless style with a cute bow tie detail on the neckline. It comes in two colors, but the beige is the obvious favorite among them. Okay, I lied. There’s another major detail I like my summer dresses to embody: effortlessness. And luckily for me, the dress I’m highlighting below is as easy as they come. The neutral color means it goes with pretty much everything while the bowtie detail lends itself to a pretty, compliment-generating outfit that doesn’t require a ton of effort. Given all of the above, it’s no surprise that girls are already wearing it all over from Californi...

The recent emergence of digital-assistant products has consumers asking Alexa or Google to perform tasks and provide information in every room of their home. The first products introduced in late 2014, and still dominating the nascent market today, were smart speakers (also called artificial-intelligence [AI] speakers). Smart speakers combine a wireless speaker system with an AI platform; initially, their primary function was to stream music from the cloud. In the past two years, smart speakers have added displays; cameras; streaming video; and home-automation control of lights, climate and security systems. The emergence of this smart-home ecosystem (Fig. 1) has resulted in a significant redundancy of smart devices throughout the home. However, recent additional functionality such as displays and home-automation control has led to form factors that start to appear as if they are suited for specific rooms of the house—although not yet optimized for t...

Chronology of the Apollo 11 Mission: the moon landing from the delivery view

13.5 tons of fuel burn per second is controlled behind the back of Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. Thousands of spectators cheer on the 16. July 1969 at 9.32 PM local time around Cape Kennedy in Florida, the 110-Meter-high Saturn V rocket, along with the three American astronauts and the space ship “Columbia” pushes droning in the sky. A storybook Start for the Mission “Apollo 11”, the first man on the moon. But until Armstrong’s famous small step, it is still a long way off. After nearly 12 minutes the spacecraft reached earth orbit. The Crew takes care of after the successful launch of smaller projects (“How the went with the Zoom of the camera?”). With a final ignition stage of the Saturn V shoot the spaceship out of Orbit in the direction of the moon. The remains of the rocket are blasted off, only the spacecraft and the lander “Eagle” to fly more. Thus, it is not heated on one side by the sun, it rotates three Revolutions per hour around its own axis like a roast chicken – the US space Agency, Nasa, speaks of the “Barbeque technique”. in a Good mood, so it sounds at least in the radio traffic, prepare the three astronauts approaching the moon.

Advancing the sustainability agenda at OutDoor by ISPO 2019

Smart materials and wearable technology at TechtextilA subtle shift is happening in discussions around smart materials and wearable technology, with a focus moving The first edition of OutDoor by ISPO took place from the 30 of June to the 3 of July in Munich and attracted 1018 exhibitors from 35 countries, who presented their materials, products and initiatives to more than 22,000 trade visitors. With the move to an updated concept and location, Europe’s largest outdoor trade fair, which was previously located in Friedrichshafen, aims to become the leading global platform for the outdoor industry and has significantly boosted its commitment to sustainability in the process. This positive shift was noticeable throughout the exhibition halls, as exhibitors and organisers made sure that a more considered approach to manufacturing and consuming outdoor products becomes a top priority for the industry. As part of this increased commitment to sustainability, OutDoor by ISPO set a new standard with its ‘Code of Conduct’, which initially provided organisers, exhibitors and visitors with tips on how to save water and power, reduce waste and recycle resources during the fair, while the lo...

Morinaga Milk’s Probiotic Bifidobacterium infantis M-63 Alleviates Mental Stress of Flood Victims

TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264), a leading Japanese dairy product company, today announced new research showing that consumption of its proprietary probiotic Morinaga Bifidobacterium infantis M-63 improved the mental state of victims of the disastrous 2014-2015 flood in Malaysia, collaborating with the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). One of the hottest topics in scientific research today is how a person’s microbiome influences his or her health in ways previously not imagined. This newfound buzz has stemmed from the publication of a multitude of recent studies, which have linked seemingly diverse health issues ̶ including digestion, immunity, weight management, and even mental health – to the makeup of an individual’s intestinal microflora. A pioneer in research on bifidobacteria and gut microbiota, Morinaga Milk has conducted substantial research on probiotics and their beneficial effects on human health. In December 2014, one of the worst floods in decades hit Malaysia. During floods, poor environmental hygiene leads to exposure to elevated levels of pathogenic bacteria, which is known to cause digestive illness and lead to addi...
