Energy Harvesting Via Vibrations
Energy Harvesting Via Vibrations

An international research group has engineered a new energy-generating device by combining piezoelectric composites with carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), a commonly used material that is both light and strong.

The new device transforms vibrations from the surrounding environment into electricity, providing an efficient and reliable means for self-powered sensors.
