Nanopatterned Fiber Based Textile Triboelectiric Nanogenerator
In this study, we report the textile based as a substrate for foldable and wearable triboelectric power generators. Nano-size pattened PDMS on the conductive woven fabric substrate by dip-coated method. For practical applications, nano patterned conductive woven fabric based power generator showed the continuous driving of the liquid crystal display screen and light emitting diode successfully. Furthermore, textile based power generator showed high sensitivity acts low applying for of under 1kgf.
The results presented here may create new possibilities for energy harvesting wearable devices, particularly in applications that require wearability and flexibility.
