Our research on energy harvesting devices includes Photovoltaic (PV) cells, piezoelectric, magnetoelectric and wireless power transmission (WPT) technologies for wearable and implantable applications. Particularly we are developing energy harvesters that powering wearable and implantable sensors in range of micro- to milli-watts.
