​Materials for Energy Harvesting

Mar 21, 2018 12:00pm ‐ Mar 21, 2018 1:30pm


Future society will require materials and methodology for energy harvesting to enable smart systems and embedded automation. As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a reality, there will be need for a trillions of sensors to enable automated intelligence (AI) applications, for example to automate the care-taking operation for aging populations. Changing batteries for these trillion sensors is not feasible, as all of us experience that even recharging batteries of everyday mobile devices is quite challenging. It will be vital to develop energy harvesting materials and technologies that can dynamically harvest energy from surroundings to generate electrical power for sensors and devices. The March, 2018 issue of the MRS Bulletin, will feature articles on the forefront of developing cutting-edge energy harvesting to address these pressing issues.  

The talks in this webinar will expand upon the MRS Bulletin issue, and attendees will be able to interact—in real time—with the webinar presenters.
