Discharge dynamics from an x-ray generating tribosource

When an adhesive tape is peeled in vacuum, x rays are generated in burst of short duration (order nanosecond) whose origin is not yet fully understood. In this work, we analyze the electrical

Adhesive tapes: From daily necessities to flexible smart electronics

Imprinting “sticky” features on the surfaces of common non-sticky flexible materials, such as paper, textile, and polymeric films produces a myriad of adhesive tapes that we use in our daily lives.

Silk Piezoelectric Tactile Sensors: The Way Forward to Developing Intelligent Implantable Sensors

The development of artificial tactile perception systems is of paramount interest in prosthetic and robotic applications. The key goal here is to develop systems with human-like capabilities, with

Charge mosaics on contact-electrified dielectrics result from polarity-inverting discharges

Charging of dielectrics on contact and separation has puzzled scientists and engineers for centuries. In a conventional view, the charges emerging on the two surfaces derive from the properties of

Experimental Investigation of Visible-Light and X-ray Emissions during Rock and Mineral Fracture: Role of Electrons Traveling between Fracture Surfaces

Radiation phenomena are usually observed during fracture of quartz-bearing rocks. Since quartz is a piezoelectric material, the associated electrical processes such as the electrification of fracture

Quasi-phase-matching (QPM) technology is considered one of the efficient ways to generate a coherent narrowband terahertz (THz) source. This review addresses two main QPM structures, such as

ZnO nanoparticles embedded silk fibroin—a piezoelectric composite for nanogenerator applications

This paper demonstrates a flexible nanogenerator (NG) using Silk-Zinc Oxide (ZnO) composite by exploiting the inherent piezoelectric properties of silk and ZnO. A direct precipitation method was

Electrodeposition as a facile way for the preparation of piezoelectric ultrathin silk film–based flexible nanogenerators

This article demonstrates the use of the electrodeposition technique as a viable alternative for depositing uniform, ultra‐smooth thin films of silk fibroin (SF). Herein, the electrodeposition of
