Researchers at Harvard and Princeton Universities are working together to understand the nature of electrets and to design and fabricate new electret materials and structures. Electrets include almost any material that shows a permanent, fixed electrostatic surface charge or an oriented permanent dipole, encompassing both solids and liquids. We seek to develop prototype devices to aid in the transfer of research to useful technology.
