New Study Unveils Shape-Configurable MXene-Based Thermoacoustic Loudspeakers with Tunable Sound Directivity
The findings of this research were officially published in Advanced Materials on November 16, 2023.
Abstract Film-type shape-configurable speakers with tunable sound directivity are in high demand for wearable electronics. Flexible, thin thermoacoustic (TA) loudspeakers—which are free from bulky vibrating diaphragms—show promise in this r... Read More

Abstract The majority of waste-heat energy exists in the form of low-grade heat (<100 °C), which is immensely difficult to convert into usable energy using conventional energy-harvesting systems. Thermally regenerative electrochemical cy... Read More
Their findings have been published in Advanced Materials as the front cover paper.
Abstract Self-assembly of nanoparticles (NPs) is a powerful route to constructing higher-order structures. However, the programmed self-assembly of NPs into non-close-packed, 3D, shape-morphing nanocilia arrays remains elusive, whereas dyna... Read More
