5 Thermoelectric Generator
Average electric power of up to hundreds of milliwatts Application tailoring achieved simply by varying number of thermocouples, deposition parameters, and substrate dimensions Projected life longer than equivalent batteries Provides power for the lifetime of the application Adaptable to wide range of ambient conditions Small temperature differences for miniature size scale Poor thermodynamic efficiency This is a conceptual illustration of typical applications in representative environments where natural temperature differences exist.

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 1842 Curie 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 Eqns Actuation 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 Field l l + D l H=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 Field l DB A B A H0=110 Oe B

14 Comparison of active materials
Smaller magnetizing coil Smaller size Higher power density Ability to withstand shock loads Bending structure

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.
