Energy Harvesting Materials

Energy harvesting or scavenging is the process of capturing small amounts of energy which would be lost in the form of heat, light, sound, vibration and the stored energy is used to improve the efficiency for wireless sensor network, wearable electronics and automotive devices. These materials are capable of replacing batteries for small, low power electronic devices and are environmentally friendly. The waste energy can be harvested by different materials. Thermoelectric and pyroelectric materials help in capturing heat and are transformed into electric power. The vibration, movement and sound are captured by piezoelectric materials that are transformed into electric power. Initially, thermoelectric materials are limited due to small conversion efficiency, but the occurrence of nanostructured thermoelectric materials led to significant development in enhancing thermoelectric properties. The pyroelectric effect is being used in sensors.
