Abstract

The present study offers an environmental-, budget- and output energy-friendly triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) based on semiconductor-based friction layers to power electronic devices with high performance systems. TENGs gather mechanical energy and convert it into electricity. Growth ZnO thin films in nano-forms as friction layers can be used to maximize the output voltages of the triboelectric nanogenerator. To raise the magnitude of triboelectric effect, the effective contact surface area, micro and nanostructure conditions of the thin film should be tuned by variations in the growing conditions such as partial O2 pressures. To determine the crystal structure, surface morphology, resistance and capacitance properties of thin films XRD, SEM, AFM, ln(I)-V, and frequency dependent-capacitance measurements were done. According to the structural and electrical features was obtained both as desired and in accordance with the literature.
