Latest Piezoelectricity Stories
Researchers from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) report that they have found a way to convert mechanical energy into electricity using viruses.
The team of Professor Keon Jae Lee (http://fand.kaist.ac.kr/) from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, KAIST, has developed new forms of low cost, large-area nanogenerator technology using the piezoelectric ceramic nanoparticles.
The boundary between electronics and biology is blurring with the first detection by researchers at Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory of ferroelectric properties in an amino acid called glycine.
Auburn, MA, – Piezo specialist PI (Physik Instrumente) has published a new brochure on medical applications of piezo ceramic actuators, transducers and motion components. Auburn,
The Control Systems Engineering and Electronics Engineering Sciences are two new key categories covered by the Sciences Social Network ScienceIndex.com.
In recent years, with the growing concerns over environmental protection and human health, environment-friendly materials have received increasing attention, and for decades researchers have been fiercely studying lead-free piezoelectric materials with high piezoelectric properties.
A special foil sensor developed to measure the pressure on a spaceplane’s wings during reentry into Earth’s atmosphere is now helping to build safer cars.
A new power scheme for cardiac pacemakers turns to an unlikely source: vibrations from heartbeats themselves.
Scientists working as part of the Metrology for Energy Harvesting Project have developed a new model to deliver the maximum power output for piezoelectric energy harvesters.
Though pacemakers require only small amounts of energy (about 1 millionth of a Watt), their batteries have to be replaced periodically, which means multiple surgeries for patients.
