Generator Powered By… Viruses



electricity from microscopic batteries
Scientists Department of Energy of the United States created a piezoelectric substance from a modified bacteriophage virus called M13 that is harmless to humans as it only attacks bacteria. When electric field was used on a film of M13, proteins coating the virus twisted due to the effect of piezoelectricity. Then the piezoelectric quality was improved through genetic modification. Next, films with M13s were then stacked onto each other with gold-plated electrodes amidst them. This ‘generator’ was wired to an LCD and electricity enough to show number ‘1’ on an LCD was produced. Now, the scientists look for the ways to further develop the discovery.
