Nanogenerator: Vibration Energy The Secret To Self-powered Electronics

Nanogenerator

Incorporated directly into a cell phone housing, the team's nanogenerator could harvest and convert vibration energy from a surface, such as the passenger seat of a moving vehicle, into power for the phone. The device is described as a "mesoporous piezoelectric nanogenerator". A multi-university team of engineers has developed what could be a promising … [Read more...]
