Title: A wearable helical organic–inorganic photodetector with thermoelectric generators as the power source

Abstract

A self-powering feature is particularly appealing for wearable electronic devices, in particular, photodetectors (PDs), as promising candidates for health and environment monitoring, are urgently desired to be made wearable and powerless.
