Micro Manufacturing for Micro Energy Systems: Progress in Energy Harvesting, Storage and Low Power Systems Technology for Wireless Sensor Networks

   

Session Sponsor:

Ever increasing demand for longer battery life for wireless devices is driving innovation in energy harvesting and storage. This major recent progress in MEMS and thin film energy harvesting devices, innovative nano-structured or solid-state thin film batteries, and ultra low power systems is enabling practical wireless sensor systems for everything from medical applications to industrial monitoring. Sector leaders report on the progress on commercial systems, and the opportunities it presents for the supply chain.
