By / February 15, 2011

[flash https://ceramics.org/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/zl_wang.flv mode=1 f={image=/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/zl_wang.jpg}] Georgia Tech’s Zhong-Lin Wang was a plenary speaker at the recent 35th International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites. There, I was able to catch up to him and ask him about his efforts in a field he calls piezoelectronics. Wang has been researching the use of zinc-oxide piezoelectric materials in…

New material to power tiny generators

By / October 24, 2009

Via press release from University of Wisconsin, we learn that a team of researchers has developed a piezoelectric nanogenerator and experimented with a variety of materials to power it. The team found that zinc oxide nanowires, which have six-sided, column-like crystals, could produce 10 nanowatts per square centimeter by converting mechanical energy into electricity. The…
