Carbon fiber is a good candidate in various applications, including military, structural, sports equipment, energy storage, and infrastructure. Coloring of carbon fiber has been a big challenge for decades due to their high degrees of crystallization and insufficient chemical affinity to dyes. Here, multicolored carbon fiber fabrics (CFFs) are fabricated using a feasible, effective atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique. The vibrant and uniform structural colors originate from thin film interference is simply regulated by controlling the thickness of comformal TiO2 coatings on the surface of black carbon fibers (CFs)...

In the 1910s, New York suffragette Electra Sparks wrote a series of essays in the Moving Picture News that advocated for cine-therapy treatments for pregnant women. Film was, in her view, the great democratizer of beautiful images, providing high-cultural access to the city's poor. These positive 'mental pictures' were important for her because, she claimed, in order to produce an attractive, healthy child, the mother must be exposed to quality cultural material. Sparks's championing of cinema during its 'second birth' was founded upon the premise of New Thought...

Dental impression making is the process of creating a negative form of the teeth and oral tissues, into which gypsum or other die materials can be processed to create working analogues. Contemporary dentistry generates new information every year and digital dentistry is becoming established and influential. Although dentists should stay abreast of new technologies, some of the conventional materials and time-tested techniques remain widely used. It is important to review the impression-making process to ensure that practitioners have up-to-date information about how to safely and effectively capture the exact form of the oral tissues to provide optimal patient management...

Ridge preservation has become a common practice to preserve the remaining alveolar bone volume after tooth extraction. The most common volume of graft material in commercially available vials is between 0.50 and 1.00 mL. The clinician must estimate how much grafting material is needed after extracting a tooth. The aim of this study is to provide the clinician with a volumetric guide for selection of graft material for ridge preservation after tooth extraction. Fifteen sets of permanent teeth, each representing a full adult dentition excluding the third molars, were selected at random from a collection of extracted teeth...

Metal halide perovskites such as methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) are highly promising materials for photovoltaics. However, the relationship between the organic nature of the cation and the optoelectronic quality remains debated. In this work, we investigate the optoelectronic properties of fully inorganic vapour-deposited and spin-coated black-phase CsPbI3 thin films. Using the time-resolved microwave conductivity technique, we measure charge carrier mobilities up to 25 cm(2)/(V s) and impressively long charge carrier lifetimes exceeding 10 μs for vapour-deposited CsPbI3, while the carrier lifetime reaches less than 0...

The classification of miscible and immiscible systems of binary alloys plays a critical role in the design of multicomponent alloys. By mining data from hundreds of experimental phase diagrams, and thousands of thermodynamic data sets from experiments and high-throughput first-principles (HTFP) calculations, we have obtained a comprehensive classification of alloying behavior for 813 binary alloy systems consisting of transition and lanthanide metals. Among several physics-based descriptors, the slightly modified Pettifor chemical scale provides a unique two-dimensional map that divides the miscible and immiscible systems into distinctly clustered regions...

Sodium-ion capacitors (SIC) combine the merits of both high-energy batteries and high-power electrochemical capacitors as well as the low cost and high safety. However, they are also known to suffer from the severe deficiency of suitable electrode materials with high initial Coulombic efficiency (ICE) and kinetic balance between both electrodes. Herein, we report a facile solvothermal synthesis of NaTi2(PO4)3 nanocages constructed by iso-oriented tiny nanocrystals with a mesoporous architecture. It is notable that the NaTi2(PO4)3 mesocrystals exhibit a large ICE of 94%, outstanding rate capability (98 mA h g(-1) at 10 C), and long cycling life (over 77% capacity retention after 10 000 cycles) in half cells, all of which are in favor to be utilized into a full cell...

It is of great importance to exploit electrode materials for sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) with low cost, long life, and high-rate capability. However, achieving quick charge and high power density is still a major challenge for most SIBs electrodes because of the sluggish sodiation kinetics. Herein, uniform and mesoporous NiS2 nanospheres are synthesized via a facile one-step polyvinylpyrrolidone assisted method. By controlling the voltage window, the mesoporous NiS2 nanospheres present excellent electrochemical performance in SIBs...

The development of practical solutions for the energy-efficient capture of carbon dioxide is of prime importance and continues to attract intensive research interest. Conceivably, the implementation of adsorption-based processes using different cycling modes, e.g., pressure-swing adsorption or temperature-swing adsorption, offers great prospects to address this challenge. Practically, the successful deployment of practical adsorption-based technologies depends on the development of made-to-order adsorbents expressing mutually two compulsory requisites: i) high selectivity/affinity for CO2 and ii) excellent chemical stability in the presence of impurities...
