New Sensor Research Findings Reported from Technical University of Denmark (Electrostatic energy harvesting device with out-of-the-plane gap closing scheme)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- New research on Sensor Research is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Lyngby, Denmark, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "In this paper, we report on an electrostatic energy harvester with an out-of-the-plane gap closing scheme. Using advanced MEMS technology, energy harvesting devices formed by a four wafer stack are batch fabricated and fully packaged at wafer scale."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Technical University of Denmark, "A spin coated CYTOP polymer is used both as an electret material and an adhesive layer for low temperature wafer bonding. The overall size of the device is about 1.1 cm x 1.3 cm. At an external load resistance of 13.4 M Omega, a power output of 0.15 mu W is achieved when vibration at an acceleration amplitude of 1 g (similar to 9.8 m/s(2)) is applied at a low frequency of 96 Hz."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The frequency response of the device is also measured and a broader bandwidth is observed at higher acceleration amplitude."
