WPI-MANA Finds 'Liquid Electret' Could Offer New Power Source for Wearable Electronics

Monday, March 23, 2020 - 6:00am

The new "liquid electret" material has the mechanoelectrical and electroacoustic functions, as well as the flexibility and stretchability, that would be crucial in a reliable and long-lasting power source for such devices.

Key Points: 
  • The new "liquid electret" material has the mechanoelectrical and electroacoustic functions, as well as the flexibility and stretchability, that would be crucial in a reliable and long-lasting power source for such devices.
  • Electrets are key components for powering mechanoelectrical devices as they behave like a battery or as an electrical counterpart of a permanent magnet.
  • However, a liquid electret material would be a better solution -- it would be flexible and stretchable, and greatly enhance the usability of the devices they power.
  • In addition, liquids offer fluidity with fast diffusion of molecules, easy processing, lack of defects and high deformability -- all requirements for flexible/stretchable device technologies.

The several advantages of nanoemulsion over conventional emulsion including micro-droplet size of nanoemulsion with higher efficiency as a better carrier all factors which are helping to drive the growth of the global nanoemulsion market."

Key Points: 
  • The several advantages of nanoemulsion over conventional emulsion including micro-droplet size of nanoemulsion with higher efficiency as a better carrier all factors which are helping to drive the growth of the global nanoemulsion market."
  • Such nanoemulsions are expected to exhibit levels of bioavailability that far exceed the absorption efficiency of today's macro or microemulsions of CBD Oil.
  • Low or widely varying levels of CBD absorption and bioavailability may significantly impact the effective delivery of the potential benefits of many CBD products on the market today.
  • Nearly 17 months after the creation of the legal adult-use market, the Canadian recreational market has developed slower than anticipated, creating working capital and profitability challenges across the industry.
