ABOUT THE CENTER FOR BIOMOLECULAR NANOTECHNOLOGIES
Flexible piezoelectric technologies are in-tegrated in smart patches and tattoos for on-skin sensing, to harvest energy from organ motility and the environment and to exploit ultrasounds in physical and biochemical sensing in wearable, tattooable and implantable devices. The target is the monitoring of both physical and biochemical analytes on skin and in extracorporeal fluid, such as tears and sa-liva, to collect information about stress, hydration state, diabetes, etc.
The conversion of ambient mechanical energy into electrical signals for powerless operation or energy harvesting is the new frontier of renewable energy production. We fabricate flexible piezoelectric thin films, exploiting their direct piezoelectric effect, that allow production of energy from fluidic flow, both wind and water mo-tion, at flow speed ten times smaller than in turbines and inside the human body for powering implanted medical devices.
