Hour 11:00
Speaker Prof Haixia (Alice) Zhang, Institute of Microelectronics, Pekin University
Category Conferences - Seminars

In this talk, Prof. Zhang will report her latest research work in TENGs with Hybrid mechanism. Frist, a r-shape hybrid piezoelectric and triboelectric NG is designed and integrated into a PC keyboard to harvest energy in the typing process, additionally, this device utilize in piano for self-recorder of composing.

Second, another hybrid magnetic and triboelectric nanogenerators is introduced which can be used as self-powered visualized omnidirectional tilt sensing system.

Third, an ultrathin flexible Piezoelectric and triboelectric Harvester for implantable applications will be discussed. The hybrid mechanism of Triboelectrical generator provides high performance and stability, which is important for powering implantable devices, touch panels, cell phone, artificial skins, sensor network.
