Development Of A High-Performance Stretchable Energy Harvester

Triboelectricity, one of the most frequent experiences in our everyday life, is a contact-induced electrification in which two surfaces are electrically charged when they are contacted and separated. In combination of the triboelectric effect and electrostatic induction, triboelectric energy generator (TEG) has been investigated to convert small and irregular mechanical energy into electrical power. TEG has unique advantages over other energy harvesting approaches, including a high power conversion efficiency, large power density, low manufacturing cost, lightweight, and a wide choice...
