Video: Michael McAlpine on piezoelectric power generation for implantable devices

Abstract:
Integrating highly efficient energy conversion materials onto stretchable and biocompatible substrates could yield breakthroughs in implantable biomechanical energy harvesting systems.

The development of a method for integrating highly efficient energy conversion materials onto stretchable and biocompatible substrates could yield breakthroughs in implantable biomechanical energy harvesting systems. Piezoelectric nanomaterials represent a particularly interesting class of smart materials due to their highly efficient electromechanical coupling. The McAlpine Research Group at Princeton University has developed new methods for the synthesis and fabrication of piezoelectric nanomaterials, their integration onto alternative substrates such as stretchable elastomers, and fundamental investigations into enhanced piezoelectric responses under conditions induced by strain and confinement.
