Keeping this in mind, other countries, including the United States, use low-cost electricity to cover the floors of their homes and offices with a layer of wood. So it happens that walking on it will continue to generate electricity.
ETH Zurich professor Guido Penzrasa and his colleagues applied silicon to a wooden tile-like sheet based on this idea. Nanocrystals were then added to the second panel, consisting of nanocrystals in a ‘zeolite-immable desalination framework,’ abbreviated as ZIF8.
It is a compound that contains metal ions and some organic molecules. These crystals are characterized by the fact that they scatter electrons. In the language of physics, this process is called functionalization.
Thus, the rate of electron taking and giving has increased by 80% compared to ordinary wood. Thus, walking on two layers of wood must generate enough electricity to light an LED bulb.
Thus, when a force of 50 Newtons is applied to a piece of wood 2 cm wide, and 5 cm long, this pressure produces 23 volts of electricity. In this way, small bulbs and hand tools such as calculators can be operated from ordinary A4 paper-sized wood.
