Electrostrictive 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 "electrostrictive 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 Less losses
  • Track 4-4 High working frequencies
  • Track 5-5 Lower cost, lighter weight
  • Track 6-6 Simple construction with smaller size
