Abstract

Miniaturized vibration energy harvesters can provide an alternative to batteries in powering the billions of low power devices we use today by extracting power from ambient motion. Especially for implanted medical devices, these alternative power sources may be an attractive option to overcome the limitations on longevity and the replacement costs and inconvenience that result from the use of batteries....
