Url: http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2008/virus-battery-0820.html
Publisher: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Description: Forget 9-volts, AAs, AAAs or D batteries: The energy for tomorrow's miniature electronic devices could come from tiny microbatteries about half the size of a human cell and built with viruses.Read how three MIT Engineers, Paula Hammond, Angela Belcher, and Yet-Ming Chiang developed a way to at once create and install such microbatteries for potential use to power portable miniature devices, from labs-on-a-chip to implantable medical sensors by stamping them onto a variety of surfaces.
