Silicon friendly materials and device solutions for microenergy applications

Micro and nanotechnologies have already made possible the fabrication of small, low cost and good performance sensors that are called to be protagonists of continuous monitoring scenarios and distributed intelligence paradigms. Energy autonomy keeps being one of the most desired enabling functionalities in the context of off-grid applications, such as wireless sensor networks (Internet of Things, Trillion Sensors).

Low energy consumption, energy harvesting (tapping into environmentally available sources such as heat and vibrations), and coupling those harvester devices to secondary batteries to buffer enough energy to account for the power demand peaks required by the communication unit of wireless nodes, may be a good solution in different application scenarios. 

In a nutshell, SiNERGY (Silicon friendly materials and device solutions for microenergy applications) deals with micro and nanotechnology approaches and 3D architectures for energy harvesting (thermoelectrics/mechanical energy harvesting) and solid state microbatteries. 

In the workshop the main research lines of the project will be presented together with keynote speeches aligned to the project goals.
