Energy Harvesting Book Chapter

30th June 2010

My book chapter on "Wireless Devices and Sensor Networks," that I co-authored with Dr Alex Weddell and Dr Nick Harris has just been published! The book, titled "Energy Harvesting for Autonomous Systems", is published by Artech House, and edited by Professor Neil White and Dr Steve Beeby. The majority of my chapter is (at least currently) available to read on Google Books.

The chapters of the book are:
  1. Introduction
  2. Wireless Devices and Sensor Networks
  3. Photovoltaic Energy Harvesting
  4. Kinetic Energy Harvesting
  5. Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting
  6. Power Management Electronics
  7. Energy Storage
  8. Case Study: Adaptive Energy-Aware Sensor Networks
  9. Concluding Remarks
"This unique resource provides a detailed understanding of the options for harvesting energy from localized, renewable sources to supply power to autonomous wireless systems. You are introduced to a variety of types of autonomous system and wireless networks and discover the capabilities of existing battery-based solutions, RF solutions, and fuel cells. The book focuses on the most promising harvesting techniques, including solar, kinetic, and thermal energy. You also learn the implications of the energy harvesting techniques on the design of the power management electronics in a system. This in-depth reference discusses each energy harvesting approach in detail, comparing and contrasting its potential in the field."

I Cross the 50-Publications Mark!
8th May 2013
My list of publications
The number of papers I have published has now crossed the '50' mark!My first paper was published in 2004, as a result of my undergraduate dissertation project, supervised by Prof. Bashir Al-Hashimi. Since then, my publications have continued, and escalated in recent years - largely thanks to the excellent team of researchers that I have working on projects with me.Next stop: 100!
