Due to its outstanding piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, P(VDF-TrFE), Piezotech® FC copolymer can convert mechanical and/or thermal energy into electricity. Ambient sources of energy can be harvested to provide electrical power for wearable and flexible low power electronics and autonomous systems. The implementation of P(VDF-TrFE), Piezotech® FC copolymer, as an energy harvesting material allows the decrease of reliance on batteries and the development of fully self-powered systems.
Possible energy harvesting applications:
- Mechanical system
- Temperature variation
