Abstract

Health, infrastructure, and environmental monitoring as well as networking and defense technologies are only some of the potential areas of application of micro-/nanosystems (MNSs). It is highly desirable that these MNSs operate without an external electricity source and instead draw the energy they require from the environment in which they are used. This Review covers various approaches for energy harvesting to meet the future demand for self-powered MNSs.
