Research on energy harvesting discussed in The New Yorker

image001Research results on kinetic energy harvesting that were obtained within the EnHANTs project were discussed in a story in The New Yorker: “If Donald Trump were Actually a Battery“.

The paper summarizing the results was written by former students and postdocs Dr. Maria Gorlatova, Dr. Guy Grebla, Mina Cong (from the WiMNet lab) and  Dr. John Sarik (from the group of Prof. John Kymissis) and appears below:
