The advanced Functional materials research group of Donghua University has made progress in the field of triboelectric fiber electronics. The result was published on Advanced Materialsunder the title of Abrasion/water-proof stretchable triboelectric yarns based on Fermat spirals. Donghua University is the only organization to complete the thesis. Zhang Dewei, a master student in the College of Materials Science and Engineering, and Yang Weifeng, a doctoral student, are the co-first authors, and Associate Researcher Hou Chengyi and Researcher Zhang Qinghong are the co-corresponding authors.

In recent years, the research group has achieved a series of research achievements in this field: continuous and large-scale production of stretchable amphibious energy yarns using industrial-grade spinning equipment (Nature Communications, 2019, 10, 868); Based on the design principle of "all-fiber", a friction-ferroelectric co-electronic fabric with moisture and thermal stability and comfort was developed (Nature Communications, 2019, 10, 5541). Coupled with capillarity effect, a new type of ferroelectric enhanced triboelectric hygroscopic fast-drying textile was manufactured (Advanced Materials, 2021, 33, 2007352).
