After Michael Faraday (1791-1867) produced an electromotive force (EMF) between the axis and edge of a disk kept in rotation and subjected to the axial magnetism of a fixed permanent magnet in 1831, several researchers and experimenters pursued efficient electrogeneration designs capable of replacing expensive electrochemical batteries [1]. It was soon clear that a stronger effect could be achieved with an electromagnetic multiplier (i.e., a coil of many windings) subjected to the alternating… 
3D Printed Double Roller-Based Triboelectric Nanogenerator for Blue Energy Harvesting
This device demonstrated the ability to generate over 160% of electrical output with the same covered area of the ocean by the triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) and potential ocean application.
Large-Scale Lever-Based Triboelectric Nanogenerator for Sensing Lateral Vibration and Wrist or Finger Bending for Controlling Shooting Game
Enhanced low-detection limit with amplified input force from the structural advantage of this lever-based triboelectric nanogenerator device can expand its applicability to the mechanical trigger for wearable electronics.
