IIT Kharagpur fabricates multipurpose piezoelectric nanogenerator

Kharagpur | India

For the first time a piezoelectric nanogenerator that is capable of generating electrical energy from diverse sources — mechanical, acoustic and wind — has been developed. The device, fabricated by a team led by researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, has remarkable energy conversion efficiency of 62%, high output current (over 12 microampere), voltage (about 61.5 volt) and power density (over 9 mW per cubic cm). The high voltage of nanogenerator can be used to light
