EPSRC Energy Harvesting Network

University of Brescia (Department of Information Engineering (DII))

The Department of Information Engineering (DII), at the Faculty of Engineering, is involved in national and international research projects in the broad field of information technology.
The Sensors and Electronic Instrumentation laboratory (SEI Lab), within the DII, has been active for more than 20 years in the fields of sensor design and testing, electronic circuits and systems, and measuring instrumentation.
The SEI Lab is equipped with in-house facilities for thick-film technology, design tools for MEMS, general-purpose and specialized equipment for sensor and electronics design, prototyping, and testing.

The SEI Lab is specifically active in energy harvesting for sensors and microsystems from mechanical sources, vibrations and thermal gradients.
Innovative solutions have been developed based on piezoelectric, electromagnetic, thermoelectric and pyroelectric principles, some of which have been patented for industrial exploitation.
