Small electronic devices and sensors could be now endlessly powered by the new innovation by the University of Arkansas scientists. A single sheet of graphene alpha carbon atoms in a layer can hold the capability to potentially harvest energy. A low voltage and virtually limitless power source can be obtained by graphene at room temperature as its can be produced by the thermal motion.
The lead researcher and professor of physics, Paul Thibado is the man behind all this and he, along his team have cracked the code for this. The long term goal for this technology is to eventually scale up the power that can be stored in a capacitor and try to replace conventional batteries.
