Fujitsu Develops Generator to Produce Power from Light, Heat
Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd has developed a power-generating hybrid generator that can convert both light and heat into usable electricity. Made from organic materials,the device was announced at the 2010 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting in San Francisco.
Developed for use in energy harvesting, the device works in aphotovoltaic mode when the lighting conditions are good and works as athermoelectric generator when the amount of light is not enough but thetemperature difference can be utilized. The generator was developed bywiring multiple pairs of n-type organic semiconductors and a p-typesemiconductors.
