This paper presents the design and simulation of energy harvesting system based on radioisotope. This energy generator is a typical spring-mass-damping system that converts nuclear energy into mechanical vibration energy. The vibration energy is converted into extricable electrical energy by a capacitive energy converter which consists of a top Pt electrode and a bottom Al electrode deposited on vibration mass. The two parallel electrodes with different work functions will generate a build-in… CONTINUE READING
