  1. 1. Analytical and Numerical Study of a Passive Self-Tuning Resonator

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Mekanik

    Author : Majeed al Tmizi; [2018]
    Keywords : Energy harvesting; mechanical vibrations; passive self-tuning; beam resonators; string resonators; sliding proof-mass; MEMS; actuators; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Energy harvesting, from ambient vibrations, can be a very effective method for solving the problem with powering electronics were the need for constant power or regular battery replacements is a trouble or an inconvenience. But, since all energy harvesters, using mechanical vibrations, need to operate in resonance in order to generate maximal electrical output, and ambient vibrations usually do not have a constant vibration frequency, this results in the need for efficient self-tuning systems.

  2. 2. Single and double clamped resonator sensors - Design, fabrication and testing

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Muhammad Islam; [2012]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Micro- and nanomechanical single and double clamped resonators are widely being used as mass and temperature sensors due to their high sensitivity, as bio sensors due to their real time label-free detection ability. These resonators have attracted considerable interest from applications like point of care diagnostics, homeland security and environmental monitoring in recent years. READ MORE
