Nikola Tesla, born in 10th July 1856 was one of the greatest mechanical and electrical engineer of the early 19th century. His work and invention revolutionized the field of electromagnetism by generating new ideas and creation in alternating current electric power system, polyphase system of electric power distribution, alternating current motor etc.
Created by a research team at Louisiana Tech University, the CNF-PZT Cantilever is a breakthrough energy harvesting device, which utilizes waste heat energy from electronic gadgets to power them. The device features the use of a carbon nanotube on a cantilever base of piezoelectric materials. The carbon nanotube film absorbs heat and forces the piezoelectric cantilever to bend, which then generates an electric current in the material.
