“Scientists have succeeded in developing a small tab made of metal which can generate electricity from the activities of the human body.”
There is a problem with charging mobile phones or other gadgets while traveling on long distances. Now this problem will soon be overcome. Scientists have succeeded in developing a small tab made of metal which can generate electricity from the activities of the human body. A human body is the storehouse of energy.
The scientists of the University of Buffalo, based in the US, developed this “tab” as the basis. Whenever an object comes in contact with another, it generates triboelectricity by charging or charging. It is difficult to build a nano-generator using triboelectric effect and is also expensive.
The tab created by researchers at the University at Buffalo and the Chinese Academy of Sciences has eliminated these two problems. This tab has been installed in polymer “Polymethyl siloxane” (PDS) made of silicon between two thin surfaces of gold.
A surface of gold is drawn in such a way that it looks like a small mountain range. When there is an activity of the body such as turning the fingers on the force, then friction between the gold and PDMS is generated. With this, electrification arises due to the rapid flow of electrons between the gold layer.
About 1.5 cm long and a cm wide tabula produces 124 volts (voltage) electricity. Not so smart enough to have a smartphone, but red 48 LED lights can burn together. Scientists are trying to use a large layer of gold in this tab to generate maximum power. With this, the energy generated from the tab is being used to develop the technology to be stored in the battery.
