Presents a comprehensive overview of flexible triboelectric nanogenerators for smart applications
Triboelectric nanogenerators are emerging technologies for self-powered systems. They transform environmental mechanical energy to electric power and have been demonstrated as a renewable and sustainable power source for diverse applications including energy conversion and healthcare. Flexible and stretchable triboelectric nanogenerators have big potential for human interface applications, such as health monitoring and artificial intelligence.
Flexible and Stretchable Triboelectric Nanogenerator Devices: Toward Self-powered Systems is presented in four parts. It starts with the fundamentals of triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs), looking at the materials, fabrication, mechanics, and power management of them. The book then examines fabrication technologies to achieve flexible and stretchable, covering ultra-thin films, as well as porous, sponges-based, and 3D assembling structures. Self-powered flexible microsystems such as smart sensors, smart actuators, and all-in-one smart systems are introduced next. The book finishes by presenting several application examples, including TENG-based active sensors, TENG-powered actuators, artificial intelligence, and integrated systems.
-Triboelectric nanogenerators have diverse applications for current energy and healthcare challenges, such as energy conversion, sensors, actuators, and wearable devices
-Covers fabrication technologies to achieve flexible and stretchable, as well as application examples including healthcare systems, artificial intelligence, IoT, advanced sports, and consumer electronics
