Project Tag: 2209OS Microfabricated microcantilevers are widely used as a nanomechanical tool for diagnostics, molecular detections and many sensor devices. Its easiness, sensitivity and cost of manufacture make it a key element for many applications. Piezoelectric material covered unimorph microcantilevers would provide energy generation from ambient sources as a result of its freely vibrating body. To generate the maximum amount of energy, the microcantilever structure’s resonance frequency (natural frequency) should...
