MEMS Based Solutions for an Integrated and Miniaturized Multi-Spectrum Energy Harvesting and Conservation System
The objective of this proposal is to develop three unique energy harvesting technologies utilizing our existing research strengths that will be of interest and utility to NASA applications and environmental conditions. By developing multiple technologies, NASA will be able to harvest energy from multiple waste energy sources, namely environmental vibrations, thermal energy, and solar flux. These devices will initially be developed separately, but all the while with an eye on the final integration into a single package at the end of Phase II. Since the research on these technologies has been ongoing, it is reasonable to develop an initial prototype of these technologies at the end of Phase I, with integration occurring in Phase II.
