News about Energy Harvesting

New class of magnets attract energy harvesting attention May 22, 2015New class of magnets attract energy harvesting attention Researchers at Temple University and the University of Maryland have identified a new class of magnets that expand their volume when placed in a magnetic field and generate negligible amounts of wasteful heat during energy harvesting. Read more Power scavenging robot 'squid' to explore extraterrestrial oceans May 21, 2015Power scavenging robot 'squid' to explore extraterrestrial oceans A team of engineers at Cornell University has won a $100,000 starter grant from NASA to develop a squid-like power-scavenging autonomous robot that could be used to explore oceans on distant planets and moons. Read more Newswatch: ARM seeks energy harvesting edge in IoT push April 16, 2015Newswatch: ARM seeks energy harvesting edge in IoT push With battery lifetimes becoming an increasing preoccupation of some of the world's largest brands including Google, Apple, Tesla and Dyson it now seems UK-based ARM is focusing on extending the battery life of sensors using Bluetooth to address the IoT. Read more Harvesting energy from electromagnetic waves April 15, 2015Harvesting energy from electromagnetic waves Researchers from the University of Waterloo in Canada have reported a novel design for electromagnetic energy harvesting based on the "full absorption concept." This involves the use of metamaterials that can be tailored to produce media that neither reflects nor transmits any power - enabling full absorption of incident waves at a specific range of frequencies and polarizations. Read more Energy harvesters power wearables April 13, 2015Energy harvesters power wearables Researchers at North Carolina State University are using nanotechnology to create energy harvesting and storage devices for ultra-low power sensors. The federally-funded research aims to create battery-free, body-powered wearable health monitors. Read more
