World-renowned STEM Experts to Speak at Summit
13 Oct 2019
Nanogenerator is a type of new technology that converts thermal and mechanical energy as produced by small-scale physical change into electricity. Its presence secures a stable and sustainable source of electricity that powers a wide range of small electronic devices equipped with a variety of features. A research team led by Prof. ZI Yunlong, Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), has recently developed a universal standardized method for evaluating the output capacity of nanogenerators. Compared with the conventional one, the new method can reflect the practical output capacity of the nanogenerator more accurately. This research will set an important foundation for the practical application and commercialisation of nanogenerators as an emerging energy harvesting technology. This research was published recently in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Communications (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-12465-2).
