Piezoelectric energy harvesting from a PMN–PT single nanowire

Author affiliations

Abstract

Flexible piezoelectric generators constructed using one-dimensional nanostructures are well known for their efficient energy harvesting. Herein, we have fabricated a flexible piezoelectric energy harvester (PEH) consisting of a single 0.65Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3–0.35PbTiO3 nanowire (PMN–PT NW) using a facile transferring approach onto a Au electrode-patterned plastic substrate. The well-developed device effectively harvested the maximum output signals (9 mV and 1.5 nA) originating from a single PMN–PT nanowire under mechanical bending/unbending motions. The designed PEH is also expected to be utilized as a versatile tool to evaluate the performance of a one-dimensional nanostructure.
