Bottom-Up Approach Provides First Characterization of Pyroelectric Nanomaterials, University of Illinois Study

Published: Jan 09, 2013

By taking a "bottom-up" approach, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have observed for the first time that "size does matter," in regards "pyroelectricity" -- the current/voltage developed in response to temperature fluctuations that enables technologies such as infrared sensors, night-vision, and energy conversion units, to name a few.
