Parallels And Divergences In Energy Harvesting

Abstract:
Earlier this month, I attended the first nanoPower Forum on energy harvesting, hosted by market research firm the Darnell Group. I later received a press release from IMEC, a Dutch research center in nanoelectronics and nanotechnology, about its latest energy-harvesting product.

The IMEC energy harvester (I'm going to call products like this "micro generators" to suggest they're in the same class as wind turbines and solar panels, but at a smaller scale) is an R&D project that produces electricity from mechanical vibrations to power wireless sensors. IMEC says its piezoelectric generator put out 40 W for an input vibration with a resonance frequency of 1.8 kHz and an amplitude of 180 nm.
