Event description

Description

If we told you there’s a way to build piezoelectric energy harvesters that can produce more than ten-times the power output of commercial devices vibrating at the same frequency, would you believe us? It’s true! The key is to integrate stacks of polycrystalline lead zirconate-titanate Pb(Zr,Ti)03 (PZT) ceramic in design concepts that amplify your input forces, resulting in higher efficiency. And we’ll show you two ways to do that.

These two new energy harvesters can produce more than ten times the power output capable from commercial devices at the same level of vibration. Not only that, the ability to couple more mechanical energy with the piezoelectric materials allowed both devices to operate more effectively in the resonance mode and at off-resonance frequencies than anything currently on the market.

But don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself.


The Details


When: March 8, 2016

Where: National Institute of Aerospace --100 Exploration Way, Hampton, VA 23666

Speakers: The inventors of the technologies, which includes Dr. Emilie J. Siochi, Dr. Tian-Bing Xu and Ji Su will be giving presentations. Dr. Rheal Turcotte will also give a brief talk about how to partner with NASA.

Who should attend: Anyone interested in learning about NASA’s piezoelectric energy harvesting devices is welcome. These technologies have been made available to the public through NASA Langley’s Technology Transfer Office and NASA is actively seeking partners to license and further develop them.

Cost: An optional $15 cash registration fee is payable at the meeting to cover refreshments and a light lunch.
