S8: Self-Power Generators



This symposium will focus on fundamental understanding and practical development of mechanical and thermal energy-harvesting strategies. Topics will include theoretical and experimental studies of piezoelectric, ferroelectric, triboelectric, and thermoelectric nanomaterial development; nanomaterials for flexible, stretchable supercapacitors and batteries; systematic design and optimization of nanogenerators for self-powered electronics; and coupling effects between piezoelectric or ferroelectric polarization and semiconducting properties, including electronic band structure, optoelectronics, photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, catalysts, and photoelectrochemistry.


Proposed Session Topics:

  • Materials and devices for piezoelectric, triboelectric, thermoelectric power generators
  • Piezoelectric and ferroelectric nanomaterial synthesis, characterization, and integration
  • Flexible and stretchable supercapacitors and batteries
  • Nanomaterials for flexible, stretchable energy storage devices
  • Theoretical and experimental studies of nanoscale mechanical- and thermal-to-electric energy conversion processes
  • Fundamental studies of band-structure engineering based on piezoelectric or ferroelectric polarization
  • Hybrid energy-harvesting techniques, including mechanical, thermal, and solar     
  • Power management systems for self-powering small electronics
