Abstract: The arch-shaped single electrode based triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) is fabricated using thin film of reduced graphene oxide nanoribbons (rGONRs) with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) polymer used as binder to effectively convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The incorporation of rGONRs in PVDF polymer enhances average surface roughness of rGONRs/PVDF thin film. With the combination of the enhancement of average roughness and production of functional groups, which indicate improve charge storage capacity of prepared film. Furthermore, the redox peaks obtained through cyclic voltammetry were identified more in rGONRs/PVDF composite in comparison to pristine rGONRs to confirm charge transfer capability of film. Herein, the output performance was discussed experimentally as well as theoretically, maximum voltage was obtained to be 0.35 V. The newly designed TENG to harvest mechanical energy and opens up many new avenues of research in the energy harvesting applications. © The Author(s) 2016.
