Nanogenerators use the piezoelectric effect of tiny nanowires to convert body movement energy, mechanical-vibration energy, sonic-wave energy, or hydraulic energy into electric energy for self-powering nanodevices and nanosystems. Such devices and systems can be used for wireless sensing; in-vivo, real-time, and implantable biological devices; environmental monitoring; defense technology; or even personal electronics. This article is part of a special issue on implantable electronics.
