BPN855: Flexible Energy Harvester, Sensor, and Actuator

Abstract: 

Flexible, wearable, and implantable devices are expected to become more abundant due to developments in materials and microfabrication technologies. In our previous work, we have successfully achieved a kind of flexible actuators that can work at low voltage and give haptic feedback. Now we are moving forward to develop energy harvesters with various sets of flexible materials and structures that can 1) harvest energy from outside stable environment; 2) generate electricity in a relatively long time; and 3) give enough energy output to power up small devices.
