In this paper, ferroelectric antimony sulfoiodide (SbSI) nanowires have been used to produce composites for device fabrication, which can be used for energy harvesting and sensors. SbSI is a very useful material for nanogenerators and nanosensors in which the high values of the piezoelectric coefficient (d33 = 650 pC/N) and the electromechanical coefficient (k33 = 0.9) are essential. Alternatively, cellulose and epoxy resin were matrix materials in these composites, whereas SbSI nanowires fill the matrix. Piezoelectric response induced by vibrations has been presented. Then, a composite with an epoxy resin has been used as an element to construct a fiber-reinforced polymer piezoelectric sensor. For the first time, comparison of piezoelectric properties of cellulose/SbSI and epoxy resin/SbSI nanocomposite has been presented. The influence of concentration of SbSI nanowires for properties of epoxy resin/SbSI nanocomposite and in a fiber-reinforced polymer based on them has also been shown. Results of aligning the SbSI nanowires in the epoxy matrix during a curing process have been presented as well. View Full-Text
