[Descriptions]
Vibration energy, one of widely available ambient energy sources, can be converted into electric power through a piezoelectric energy harvester to realize self-powered portable and/or wireless electronic devices.
As an alternative design paradigm of a cantilevered piezoelectric energy harvester, piezoelectric energy harvesting skin (EH skin) has been proposed which can be directly attached onto the surface of a vibrating engineered system, and thus requires no need for clamping fixtures and proof mass. EH skin has been featured on the PhysOrg.com.
