    In this work, the authors demonstrate a new hybrid nanogenerator, which have been developed for simultaneously harvesting mechanical energies from flowing water and wind. The hybrid device can be employed to fabricate a wireless self-powered system for temperature and humidity sensing. This work promotes the development of renewable energy and presents a promising application for self-powered remote sensing.

    The dynamic aging of UFG Al–Fe alloy (HPT at 200 °C) has been used to enhance the electrical conductivity. Comparison of observed results with static aging (annealing at 200 °C for 8 h), also performed in present work, shows superiority of dynamically aged alloy over statically aged. The increase of electrical conductivity by ≈3% IACS is accompanied by substantial decrease of heat treatment time from 8 h for static annealing to 5 min for high temperature deformation.
