Drexel Engineering hosted the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series on July 29, 2013 at 2:15 p.m. in the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building room 104 with Dr. Zhong Lin (ZL) Wang, Hightower Chair in Materials Science and Engineering, Regents' Professor, Engineering Distinguished Professor and Director of the Center for Nanostructure Characterization at Georgia Tech. Wang discussed the intersection between nanotechnology and energy. He focused on how developing wireless nanodevices and nanosystems is of critical importance for sensing, medical science, environmental/infrastructure monitoring, defense technology and even personal electronics. At the lecture titled, “Nanogenerators as New Energy Technology and Piezotronics for Functional Systems,” Wang explained how nanogenerators (NGs) have been developed based on piezoelectric, trioboelectric and pyroelectric effect, aiming at building self-sufficient power sources for mico/nano-systems. This talk will emphasized the fundamentals and novel applications of NGs.
