Figure 5

(a) Schematic diagram illustrating the fabricating process of a W-TENG. (b) Digital photography of a W-TENG. Electron optical microscope images of the (c) nylon fabric, (d) polyester fabric, and (e) silver fiber fabric. (f) Structure and working process of the freestanding triboelectric-layer TENG, where acrylic works as the freestanding triboelectric layer in a vertical contact-separation mode. (g) Structure and working process of the freestanding triboelectric-layer TENG, where acrylic works as the freestanding triboelectric layer under a lateral-sliding mode. (h) A power-generating shoe (P-shoe) that could harvest energy from footsteps and light up about 9 LEDs. (i) The current generated by the P-shoe. (j) A W-TENG integrated in a coat harvesting energy from the shaking of clothes. (k) The current generated by the coat. (l) The W-TENG harvesting energy from bending of leg joints. (m) The current generated by the leg joint. (n) The W-TENG harvesting energy from arm joints. (o) The current generated by the arm joint.
