    Abstract

    A magnetic-assisted noncontact triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) is developed by combining a magnetic responsive layer with a TENG. The novel TENG device is applied to harvest mechanical energy which can be converted into electricity and light emissions. This work has potential for energy harvesting, magnetic sensors, self-powered electronics and optoelectronics applications.
