Adv. Mater., vol. 26, issue 4, 2014
A cellulose-nanofiber (CNF)-enabled capillary photo-electrochemical (PEC) photoanode for performing water-splitting reactions outside of the electrolyte body, mimicking the water-transmission process in plants. The capillary PEC can achieve enhanced reaction kinetics and higher efficiency.

J. Vac. Sci. Technol. B, vol. 29, issue 6, 2011
Oxide nanostructures grown by vapor deposition techniques, including ZnO nanoflowers (top left), parallel aligned ZnO nanofin structure (top right), vertically aligned ZnO nanowire arrays (bottom left), and TiO2 nanorod branches grown around Si nanowires (bottom right).

J. Mater. Chem., vol. 21, issue 25, 2011
ZnO nanoflowers evidenced the self-catalyzed growth mechanism of ZnO nanowires. This research revealed a fundamental kinetics that governs the mechanisms and morphology selection of ZnO nanostructures in a non-catalyst growth system.

ACS Nano, vol. 3, no. 6, 2009
Vertical aligned ZnO nanofin arrays were produced by a interesting catalyst drifting phenomenon at high temeperature. The orientation of the nanofins is determined by the drifting pathes of the Zn clusters. This could be a general phenomenon in metal catalyzed nanowire growth process.

The National Nanotechnology Initiative: 2nd Assessment and Recommendations of NNAP
"Power fiber" - Kevlar fibers covered with vertically aligned piezoelectric ZnO nanowire arrays. Half of them are coated with Au and serve as electrode. The relative movements between the fibers induces deformation of the ZnO nanowires, thus generate electricity.

J. Mater. Chem., vol. 17, issue 8, 2007
Hexaganol patterned and vertically aligned ZnO nanowires growing on sapphire substrate. They are foundamental building blocks for piezoelectric nanogenerators, which are able to convert mechanical vibrational energy into electricity.

Materials Today, vol. 7, issue 6, 2004
The splendid nanostructures of ZnO. Among them, the vertically aligned nanowires and the mesoporous ZnO nanowires are contributed by Dr. Xudong Wang.
