Piezoelectric devices for harvesting energy from ordinary movements in the environment may soon get a big boost. Ceramics have been used commonly in the past, although their brittleness has been a drawback. But researchers in Singapore have found they can maximize electrical output from metal-electrode-coated stacked layers of low-cost polyvinylidene fluoride by careful analysis, according to this article.
