Abstract

With the rapid development of wearable electronic systems, the need for stretchable nanogenerators becomes increasingly important for autonomous applications such as the Internet-of-Things. Piezoelectric nanogenerators are of interest for their ability to harvest mechanical energy from the environment with its inherent polarization arising from crystal structures or molecular arrangements of the piezoelectric materials. In this work, 3D printing is used to fabricate a stretchable piezoelectric nanogenerator which can serve as a self-powered sensor based on synthesized oxide–polymer composites.
