Determination of Microsphere-Lens Magnification Using Micro-Robotic Scanning Superlens Nanoscopy
Boliang Jia, Pan Li, Feifei Wang, Ho Yin Chan, Guanglie Zhang and Wen Jung Li
This article presents a flexible probe-lens assembly scheme that uses a barium titanate glass microsphere, as well as various scanning stages that can be used to freely investigate the sample surface and perform large-area super-resolution imaging.
Ultrasound Imaging and Tracking of Micro/Nanorobots: From Individual to Collectives
Qianqian Wang and Li Zhang
In this review article, the recent progress and challenges on the imaging and tracking of micro/nanorobots using medical ultrasound imaging technologies are presented along with future opportunities in the real-time navigation of micro/nanorobots in vivo and their collectives.
Straintronics: Digital and Analog Electronics with Strain-Switched Nanomagnets
This review article provides a glimpse of the exciting world of “straintronics” that deals with switching nanomagnets with electrically generated mechanical strain and its myriad applications in computing, signal processing and signal generation.
Plasmon-Enhanced Photovoltaic Characteristics of Black Phosphorus-MoS2 Heterojunction
Hou Chaojian, Li Bo, Li Qingwei, Yang Lijun, Wang Yang, Yang Zhan and Dong Lixin
In this article, a novel integrated strategy by embedding metallic plasmonic pentamers optical nano-antenna array (ONAA) onto overlap region of black phosphorus MoS2 p-n heterojunction is firstly exploited under both a near-infrared laser (λ = 830 nm) and standardized AM1.5G solar irradiation, demonstrating its potential for high-performance sensing and energy harvesting functional units in future wireless power supply micro/nano-systems.
Self-Powered Miniaturized Acceleration Sensor Based on Rationally Patterned Electrodes
Baocheng Wang, Weilian Wei, Junhuan Chen, Zhihao Yuan, Yapeng Shi, Zhiyi Wu and Zhong Lin Wang
This article presents a miniaturized acceleration sensor (MAS) with rationally patterned electrodes, based on the single electrode triboelectric mechanism, featuring small size, high accuracy, large detection scale, and environmental friendliness.
