Electro strictive Polymers for Energy Harvesting

Energy harvesting is emerging as a viable method for electronic devices to pull ambient energy from their surrounding environment and convert it into electrical energy for stored power. A group of Smart materials known as "electro strictive polymers" have been explored for years by researchers for their potential mechanical energy harvesting abilities.Electrostrictive polymers are a variety of electroactive polymers that deform due to the electrostatic and polarization interaction between two electrodes with opposite electric charge

  • Track 1-1 High energy density for low electric field
  • Track 2-2 Less losses
  • Track 3-3 High working frequencies
  • Track 4-4 Lower cost, lighter weight
  • Track 5-5 Simple construction with smaller size
