A New Prospect in Road Traffic Energy Harvesting Using Lead-Free Piezoceramics
Manuel Vázquez-Rodríguez, Francisco J. Jiménez, Lorena Pardo, Pilar Ochoa, Amador M. González and José de Frutos.
In this paper, a new prospect using lead-free piezoelectric ceramics is presented in order to determine their behavior in piezoelectric-based road traffic energy harvesting applications. This paper will describe the low-cost and fully programmable novel test bench developed. The test bench includes a traffic simulator and acquires the electrical signals of the piezoelectric material...

Magnetoelectric dual-particulate composites with wasp-waisted magnetic response for broadband energy harvesting
P.Galizia , M.Alguerò , N.Bernier, N.Gambacorti , E.Aza, A.Lappas, M.Venet, C.Galassi
Dual-particulate composites of cobalt ferrite dispersed in a fully dense PZT matrix are produced by quite-fast sintering of mechanically activated powders. By high-energy milling of the powders a bi-modal grain size distribution, with octahedral nano-grains and larger grains grown by multiple parallel twinning, are achieved in the final microstructure. The material display a &ldq...
