Russian scientists developed new type of piezoelectric generators

Scientists from the Institute of nanotechnology, electronics and instrumentation engineering with the Southern Federal University (SFedU) created piezoelectric generators on the basis of nitrogen-alloyed carbon nanotubes transforming the vibrations of urban noise, human movements and talks into electricity. In future, such generators can become a source of stand-alone power supply for personal gadgets, such as watches, headsets and telephones.
