Appl. Phys. Lett., Volume 94, Issue 164102 (2009)



Vibration to electricity energy conversion strategies are discussed by using nonlinear stochastic dynamics. General principles for the exploitation of nonlinear oscillators in energy harvesting that provide useful leads for the realization of micropower generators of practical interest are presented.
