Title: On-chip energy harvesting and storage for wearable or implantable applications
Biography: Xiaohong Wang
The rapid development of wearable and implantable electronics has greatly increased the demand for energy harvesting and storage devices with similar physical properties and integration capability. Nowadays. Li-ion batteries have been being still mainstream as their high power and voltage output. Can we convert energy in the human body into electricity can provide a life-long power source to apply in various wearable electronics and potentially in implanted microdevices? Can we also store the energy into supercapacitors with the high charge/discharge rate, long cycle life, and high-energy efficiency? This speech will introduce the development of energy harvesting and storage on-chip for wearable or implantable applications.
