About the book

Nanogenerators have emerged as a leading mechanical energy harvesting technology within the last five years, proving their applicability as energy harvesters as well as self-powered active sensors. These biomechanical energy harvesting devices are eco-friendly and pollution-free renewable energy sources.

The proposed book should cover the energy conversion mechanisms of triboelectric, piezoelectric, and hybrid generators and their boosting performance strategies. Furthermore, the various strategies adopted so far to improve the performance of various nanogenerators using the theoretical assumptions and experimental analysis can be also described briefly. Ultimately, this book will cover the application of nanogenerators in self-powered sensors & systems and their commercialization.

About the editor

Bhaskar Dudem

University of Surrey

Bhaskar Dudem is currently working as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (from Oct 2019) at the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI), University of Surrey, England, UK. He received the Master of Technology (MTech., 2012) from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, India. Afterwards, he was as a teaching faculty member at K.L. University, India (2012–2014). In Aug 2018, he received a PhD degree from the Department of Electronics and Radio Engineering, Institute for Wearable Convergence Electronics (IWCE), Kyung Hee University, South Korea. He also worked at the same institute as a Post-Doc for a year (Sep 2018–Sep 2019). His research interests include wearable and flexible piezo/triboelectric nanogenerators for energy harvesting and sensing applications, anti-reflection coatings, solar, and hybrid energy cells, resulting in more than 30 works published in reputed peer-reviewed international journals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Tikel

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
