Bimaterial Microelectromechanical System (MEMS) Solar Power Generator
MetadataShow full item record
A bimaterial microelectromechanical system (MEMS) solar power generator device converts radiant energy received from the sun, or other light source, into heat, which is then used to produce electricity through the piezoelectric effect. As the efficiency of piezoelectric materials can often reach up to 90%, the efficiency is greater than that of conventional solar cells.
