Research by the groups of Professors Kymissis and Zussman discussed in The New Yorker

Research results on kinetic energy harvesting that were obtained within the EnHANTs project were discussed in a recent story in The New Yorker: “If Donald Trump were Actually a Battery”.

The paper summarizing the results was written by former students and postdocs of Professors John Kymissis and Gil ZussmanDr. Maria Gorlatova, Dr. Guy Grebla, Mina Cong, and  Dr. John Sarik, and appears below:
