Graphene film could generate electricity from flowing water

from The Engineer

U.S. researchers hope a new method of harvesting energy from flowing water could help create self-powered microsensors for discovering oil. A team from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York, have found a way of generating small amounts of electricity by flowing water over surfaces coated with graphene — a form of carbon that is one-atom thick. This energy should be enough to power tiny sensors that are placed in water or other fluids and pumped down into a potential oil well, said research leader Professor Nikhil Koratkar. more
