Energy Harvesting and Wearable Energy Technologies
Daoud Research Group
The group developed a hybrid generator by combining two energy conversion concepts, piezoelectric and triboelectric effects, after successfully unravelling the transduction mechanisms of the individual generators and the combined effects.
Wearable Energy Technologies
The group’s investigation into light harvesting self-cleaning natural fibers using the concepts of photocatalysis and nanotechnology was a first in the textile community. It was recognized internationally, with features in Nature (2004) and Science (2008).
