Wearable Triboelectric Generator based on a Hybrid Mix of Carbon Nanotube and Polymer Layers

A novel single-layer structured triboelectric generator (TEG) is proposed with a hybrid mix of carbon nanotube (CNT) and silk. Here, the mixing of two materials in liquid phase for proven effective power generation is shown. In this research, CNT provides the function of conductivity, whereas silk fibroin forms the main triboelectric generation material that is uniformly mixed with CNT, to achieve a conductive film with superior electric power generation capability. The newly proposed TEG shows very good electrical performance and great potential in simplifying TEG's structure and manufacturing process, enhancing their feasibility in future wearable applications.
