Self-powered nanosensors: Nanogenerators used to power sensors based on zinc oxide nanowires

Sunday, March 28, 2010 - 21:28 in Physics & Chemistry

By combining a new generation of piezoelectric nanogenerators with two types of nanowire sensors, researchers have created what are believed to be the first self-powered nanometer-scale sensing devices that draw power from the conversion of mechanical energy.
