Photo-stimulated triboelectric generation

Author affiliations


A new photo-stimulated triboelectric generation occurring between a metal–oxide and polyimide during friction was demonstrated. The output currents of the triboelectric nanogenerator were significantly enhanced, under light illumination, up to approximately 5 times depending on the wavelength of the light, providing a new route for energy harvesting devices as well as self-powered selective photodetectors.
