24_45i/2012Piezoelectric Materials: All-Solution-Processed Flexible Thin Film Piezoelectric Nanogenerator (Adv. Mater. 45/2012)

An all-solution-processed flexible piezoelectric nanogenerator, composed of polycrystalline ZnO thin film and functional polymer layers such as P3HT/PCBM and PEDOT:PSS, generates energy through a mechanical rolling and muscle stretching system. On page 6022, Youn Sang Kim, Sang-Woo Kim, and co-workers show that this all-solution-processed nanogenerator is feasible as a piezoelectric patchable device and is promising for use in future energy harvesters such as wearable human patches and mobile electronics.
