A novel method to measure the output voltage of a zinc oxide nanowire nanogenerator is proposed. Various tests are performed to verify that the output voltage does indeed originate from the nanogenerator and not from environmental noise. Although noise does influence the output voltage measurements, the output voltage is easily distinguishable from the measured noise. It is also shown that the method can be used to determine the internal resistance of the nanogenerator by measuring the output voltage over different output resistors. © 2011 IOP Publishing Ltd.
