9 Power Shirt (GIT) Image courtesy Zhong Lin Wang and Xudong Wang, GIT Regents professor Zhong Lin Wang holds a prototype microfiber nanogenerator composed of two fibers that rub together to produce a small electrical current. Many pairs of these fibers could be woven into a garment to produce a "power shirt.“ (2008)
10 What is Magnetostriction? “A change in dimensions exhibited by ferromagnetic materials when subjected to a magnetic field.” (Random House Dictionary)Documented by James Joule in 1842Curie temperature quite high (~750°C for Fe81-Ga19)Effect will not “de-pole”Domain ordering returns without the need for poling after exceeding Curie temperature.
11 Actuation modeled by the “direct effect”: 1-D Linearized EqnsActuation modeled by the “direct effect”:Sensing modeled by the “inverse effect”:where H=nI
12 Magnetostrictive Actuation The Direct Effect: The change in the dimensions of a ferromagnetic body caused by a change in its state of magnetization.DC or AC Magnetic Fieldll + D lH=nI
13 Magnetostrictive Sensing The Inverse Effect: The change in the magnetic state of a ferromagnetic body caused by a change in its state of stress.DC Magnetic FieldlDBABAH0=110 OeB

15 Magnetostrictive Electric Harvesting The Inverse Effect: The change in the magnetic state of a ferromagnetic body caused by a change in its state of stress.
