Attended NGPT 2018 in Seoul, Korea


Prof. Katherine Kim, Bo-Kyung Yoon, and PEARS Lab members attended the International Conference on Nanogenerators and Piezotronics (NGPT), May 8-11, 2018, in Seoul, Korea.



Prof. Kim Co-Chaired a Technical Session on “Piezotronics/Tribotronics for Sensors, MEMS and NEMS 1” on Thursday, May 10 and gave talk entitled “Implementation Considerations for Low-power Energy Conversion Circuitry in Triboelectric Nanogenerator Energy Harvesting Applications” on Friday, May 11.



Undergraduate intern Bo-Kyung Yoon presented a poster on “Circuit Modeling of a Three-plate Triboelectric Nanogenerator with Ground System for Energy Harvesting” on  Friday, May 11. Attending NGPT 2018 was a great opportunity to learn more about transducers and better understand how to develop better power circuitry for energy harvesting.
