North Carolina State University researchers have developed a new design for harvesting body heat and converting it into electricity for use in wearable electronics. The experimental thermoelectric generator prototypes are lightweight, conform to the shape of the body, and can generate far more electricity than previous lightweight heat harvesting technologies. The researchers also believe they […]

A Louisiana Tech University and University of Texas at Arlington team of professors and Louisiana Tech graduate students have created a hybrid nanomaterial that can be used to convert light and thermal energy into electrical current as a thermoelectric generator. The team has synthesized a combination of copper sulfide nanoparticles and single-walled carbon nanotubes.  They […]
