Energy Harvesting

Demand for Advanced Cerametrics’ energy harvesting technology is growing very rapidly. Strong underlying demand drivers for growth in energy harvesting applications include:

  • Growth in mobile devices and wireless products
  • Expanded features requiring more power
  • Lower-power components becoming available
  • Desire for “green” technology with a perpetual / renewable power source
  • Consumer / maintenance convenience due to the increasing inconvenience and economic cost of replacing batteries or hard wiring systems.

Vibration Control Demand

There is an emerging requirement for smart material that reacts automatically to stop or monitor vibration. In the case of sporting goods, the benefit is better comfort and performance. In industrial applications, Advanced Cerametrics’ Active Vibration Control™ offers enhanced structural performance, proactive maintenance, lower noise levels, and extended system life while greatly reducing operating costs.

There are many market segments / application areas requiring better vibration control including:

  • Hoses – aircraft, space craft, air conditioning and automobile
  • Rotor blades – helicopters and wind generators
  • Self-powered sensors for use in monitoring vibration in production environments for proactive maintenance systems
  • Sporting goods – skis, rackets, hockey sticks, bows, etc.

Advanced Materials Demand Drivers

Advanced materials created with Advanced Cerametrics’ proprietary manufacturing process have a range of military, industrial and consumer applications. The ability to create high tech ceramic fibers with a range of chemistries provides a series of unique attributes. Physically, these fibers can offer features such as light weight, flexibility, strength, radio frequency transparency, conductivity, and extreme hardness, plus resistance to very high temp and severe thermal shock. Exciting possible uses for these advanced materials include extremely hard light weight armor, ultra high speed missile nose cones, ultrasound sensors, super conductors, and bonding agents for human bones.
