The device continuously generated energy equal to several hundred millivolts for a week.
Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have created a device to generate electricity from thin air. Advanced Materials reports.
In particular, the new “air generator”, or Air-gen, based on microscopic holes less than 100 nanometers in size, which is a thousand times smaller than a human hair, can receive electricity from in water droplets in the air.
When humid air passes through the small holes in the Air-gen material, the water molecules first interact with the upper and then the lower film chamber. This creates an imbalance of charges, that is, electricity.
In addition, further research results have shown that almost any material can become an Air-gen device, as long as it is 100 nanometers or smaller.
Researchers hope that this technology can help fight climate change by serving as an alternative to fossil fuels.
Earlier it was reported that researchers with the help of a Lego constructor created a printer capable of creating human tissue samples.
