Recently published book summarizes research work of Kottapalli and colleagues

10 April 2019

Dr Ajay Kottapalli, Advanced production Engineering group of ENTEG, and colleagues recently published a study book titled Self-Powered and Soft Polymer MEMS/NEMS Devices. The book explores the fabrication of soft material and biomimetic MEMS sensors, presents a review of MEMS/NEMS energy harvesters and self-powered sensors, and focuses on the recent efforts in developing flexible and wearable piezoelectric nanogenerators. It also includes a critical analysis of various energy harvesting principles, such as electromagnetic, piezoelectric, electrostatic, triboelectric, and magnetostrictive. Included are chapters that:

  • Describe self/low-powered MEMS devices that are developed through biomimetic and bio-inspired approaches
  • Review the recent progress in kinetic MEMS/NEMS-enabled energy harvesters as self-powered sensors
  • Comprehensively review the ongoing research done in the field of nanofiber-based flexible and wearable energy harvesters
  • Explore the current trends in the field of soft materials research and future challenges

This multidisciplinary book is appropriate for students and professionals in the fields of material science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and bioengineering.
