Double-Channel Piezotronic Transistors for Highly Sensitive Pressure Sensing
Piezotronic transistors (PTs) that utilize inner crystal potential generated by interface piezoelectric polarization charges as the gate voltage have great potential applications in force/pressure-triggered or controlled electronic devices, sensors, human–machine communication, and microelectromechanical systems. Although the performance of PTs has been partially enhanced by exploring special materials with different geometries or high piezoelectricity, few studies have been focused on the structure design of PT itself to more effectively enhance the performance and structural reliability. Here, an integrated double-channel plane piezotronic transistor is invented as a high-performance pressure-sensing technology. Owing to the double-channel modulation and the plane structure, the PT has the merits of high pressure sensitivity (84.2–104.4 meV/MPa) and high structural reliability, which provides the opportunity for great applications, such as human–computer interfacing, biosensing, and health monitoring.

We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
