Energy harvesting and nanotechnology

In a study published in the August issue of the journal Science, researchers describe twistron yarns and their possible applications, such as harvesting energy from the motion of ocean waves or from temperature fluctuations. When sewn into a shirt, these yarns served as a self-powered breathing monitor. Yarns Based on Nanotechnology The yarns are constructed from carbon nanotubes, which are hollow cylinders of carbon 10, times smaller in diameter than a human hair. The researchers first twist-spun the nanotubes into high-strength, lightweight yarns.
