Technology Review Magazine Recognizes Two Georgia Tech ‘Innovators’

Abstract:
Karen Lin and Xudong Wang were selected from more than 300 nominees by the magazine, which is published by MIT.

Wang is involved in nanotechnology research, including alignment of nanowires and nanodevice integration. He and fellow researchers recently developed a nanogenerator that converted ambient wave/vibration energy into electricity.

"This is a major step toward a portable, adaptable and cost-effective technology for powering in-vivo nanosensors, MEMS and wireless nanosensors," said Professor Zhong Lin (Z.L.) Wang. "Xudong has been very creative in developing this prototype and demonstrating its potential applications, which is the most remarkable advance in my group's research in the last few years. He is very deserving of this honor."
