PROJECT TITLE :
A Triboelectric Energy Harvester Using Low-Cost, Flexible, and Biocompatible Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA)
In this paper, we propose a triboelectric energy harvester (EH) using ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) polymer for the first time. EVA acts as a polymer with positive electrification properties against metals like gold and aluminum. The EVA sheet provides us with an occasional-value EH because the usage of already roll-to-roll-patterned sheet enables us to avoid the common expensive patterning ways for introducing the specified roughness to the EH device. Moreover, the biocompatibility and suppleness of EVA makes it a appropriate candidate for future implantation of this EH inside body. The transparency of EVA helps us to style the EVA-based EHs in several configurations for the characterization with two types of setups. The proposed new mass-tapping and detachment setups for the EVA EHs bring us a lot of effective methods to quantitatively investigate important properties of EH whereas resembling the daily motions of a living being instead of using motorized characterization methods.
