    Self-Charging Structures Using Piezoceramics and Thin-Film Batteries

    This paper presents the investigation of a novel concept involving the combination of piezoelectrics and new thin-film battery technology to form multifunctional self-charging, load-bearing energy harvesting devices. The proposed self-charging structures contain both power generation and energy storage capabilities in a multilayered, composite platform consisting of active piezoceramic layers for...
