Static electricity and triboelectric effect could charge our electronics (Market research, Analysis, trend, news updates, forecast, and market growth)
Static electricity is one of the most common, yet poorly understood, forms of power generation. Because of low voltage electric generation, the Static electricity was ignored by globe but now time changed and scientists are focusing on it and doing research. A new study suggests the cause of this hair-raising phenomenon is tiny structural changes that occur at the surface of materials when they come into contact with each other. The finding could someday help technology companies create more sustainable and longer-lasting power sources for small electronic devices.
The research could finally help technology companies create more sustainable and longer-lasting power sources for small electronic devices.
Supported by a $400,000 National Science Foundation grant, Chen and Zayd Leseman, Ph.D., associate professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering at Kansas State University, are conducting research on the triboelectric effect, a phenomenon wherein one material becomes electrically charged after it contacts a different material through friction.
The triboelectric effect has been known since ancient times, but the tools for understanding and applying it have only become available recently due to the arrival of nanotechnology.
The friction between your fingers and your smartphone/tablet screen. The friction between your wrist and smartwatch. Even the friction between your shoe and the ground. These are great potential sources of energy that we can to tap into. "Ultimately, this research can grow our economic security and help society by reducing our need for conventional sources of power."
