Bimaterial microelectromechanical system (MEMS) solar power generator

  • US Patent No. 8525393
  • Issued: September 03, 2013
  • Status: Active
Energy

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.
