Triboelectric Energy: A Micropillar‐Assisted Versatile Strategy for Highly Sensitive and Efficient Triboelectric Energy Generation under In‐Plane Stimuli (Adv. Mater. 2/2020)

Changhyun Pang, Sung Beom Cho, and Sungwoo Chun report a novel and general method for efficient triboelectric energy generation, by assembling artificial micropillars on typical triboelectric nanogenerator devices. The hairy‐structured devices can efficiently harvest electrical energy from in‐plane stimuli such as contact rubbing pressure or noncontact airflow, which works even for extremely small mechanical variations (<0.2 Pa) efficiently.
