Abstract

Harvesting energy from ambient sources has been a recent topic of interest. A typical linear harvester is effective only near resonance, limiting its frequency bandwidth. In order to increase the efficiency and bandwidth of harvesters, various strategies have been proposed. Using multiple harvesters...
