Abstract: With the rise of intelligent wearable electronics and internet of things (IoT), energy harvesters converting rich but irregular mechanical energy into electricity have attracted much attention, as this method can reduce the dependence on batteries. Herein, various flexible generators based on electret and piezoelectret materials are successfully fabricated, with the fundamental working mechanism of electrostatic induction caused by the surplus charges. Specifically, the charges capturing ability of the electret and piezoelectret materials and the structure of the generators are optimized, in order to improve the output power and stability. These generators have been demonstrated the applications in mobile health care, human interaction and wireless communication, etc. These works not only offer new valuable insights, but will open up new perspectives to develop self-powered systems with high properties.
