Piezoelectricity, flexoelectricity to power nanoscale devices

By / August 2, 2009

According to a press release, a team of University of Houston scientists has set out with the goal to use piezoelectrics to create nanodevices that can power electronics, such as cell phones, MP3 players and biomedical implants. “Nanodevices using piezoelectric materials will be light, environmentally friendly and draw on inexhaustible energy supplies,” says associate professor…
