Flexible, Ceramic Thin-Film Nanogenerator
Keon Jae Lee, a professor in KAIST's Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Zhong Lin Wang, a professor in the same department at Georgia Institute of Technology, have developed new forms of highly efficient, flexible nanogenerator technology using freely bendable piezoelectric ceramic thin-film nano-materials that can convert tiny movements of the human body (such as heart beats and blood flow) into electrical energy. ?This technology can be used to turn on an LED by slightly modifying circuits and operate touchable flexible displays,? said Professor Zhong Lin Wang.
