ABSTRACT
In this article, a new method is used to fabricate a high-performance triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG), which is convenient and cost-effective. A polyformaldehyde (POM) film with novel structures is prepared through electrospinning and is combined with a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film to assemble micro-nano structured TENG. The short-circuit current (I s) and open-circuit voltage (V o) of the TENG are up to 0.4343 mA and 236.8 V, respectively, and no significant change is observed by applying different frequencies of external impact forces from 1 to 10 Hz. Finally, we successfully drive an electrochromic device (ECD) directly using TENG within just 2 min for the first time.

Mentions: The high and stable electric output of the TENG implies its application to low-energy electronics, for example, ECD, which changes light transmission properties in response to voltage. We connected the TENG to a homemade ECD (1 × 1 cm) [26] through a rectifying circuit directly. By applying excitation impact forces of 10 Hz on the TENG continuously, the ECD switched from bleached state to colored state in 2 min (Fig. 6). This implies the promising potential of TENG in charging batteries and powering light-emitting diodes, liquid crystal displays, and some portable electronics.Fig. 6
