Lead Iodide Nanosheets For Piezoelectric Energy Conversion And Strain Sensing

Harvesting ambient mechanical energy or sensing the mechanical signals based on nanomaterials for self-powered and flexible systems can provide potentially revolutionary advancements in energy technologies. Piezoelectric nanogenerators/sensors, which can be fabricated using nanowires with none-centrosymmetric structure (such as ZnO and GaN or polarization domains (BaTiO3, PbZrxTi1-xO3, and P(VDF-TrFE), etc.), have been widely demonstrated for applications in wearable electronics, implantable devices, wireless transmitters, etc. Compared to one-dimensional (1D) nanowires, two-dimensional (2D) piezoelectric nanomaterials such as molybdenum sulfide (MoS2), hexagonal boron nitride...
