New device generates electricity from condensation

New device generates electricity from condensation

Water condensing and jumping from a superhydrophobic surface can be harnessed to produce electricity

Last year, MIT researchers discovered that when water droplets spontaneously jump away from superhydrophobic surfaces during condensation, they can gain electric charge in the process. Now, the same team has demonstrated that this process can generate small amounts of electricity that might be used to power electronic devices. The new findings, by postdoc Nenad Miljkovic, associate professor of... More »
