Sandwich Evaporation-Solvent Annealing Fabrication of Highly Crystalline MAPbICl Perovskite Solar Cells.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2021 Sep 20. Epub 2021 Sep 20.

Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics, National Taiwan University, No. 1, Sec. 4, Roosevelt Road, Taipei 10617, Taiwan.

Perovskites doped with chlorine (Cl), which are usually fabricated using the solution process, can effectively improve the stability and carrier mobility. Compared with the low tolerance of the solution process that relies mostly on personal skill, thermal evaporation is an important method for large-scale production of perovskite solar cells but the production cost is high. In this study, the sandwich evaporation-solvent annealing (SE-SA) method is proposed. Read More

Temporally resolved neural dynamics underlying handwriting.

Neuroimage 2021 Sep 15;244:118578. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China. Electronic address:

How do the temporal dynamics of neural activity encode highly coordinated visual-motor behaviour? To capture the millisecond-resolved neural activations associated with fine visual-motor skills, we devised a co-registration system to simultaneously record electroencephalogram and handwriting kinematics while participants were performing four handwriting tasks (writing in Chinese/English scripts with their dominant/non-dominant hand). The neural activation associated with each stroke was clearly identified with a well-structured and reliable pattern. The functional significance of this pattern was validated by its significant associations with language, hand and the cognitive stages and kinematics of handwriting. Read More
