Heat and light for powering the Internet of Things
Harvestore is a new European project for the development of beyond-state-of-the-art technologies in the field of Internet of Things.
Our “μ-harvestorers” will be able to collect and store energy from heat and light at the same time, in order to serve a whole family of new-generation portable devices. They will be powerful, small, and environmental friendly.
A EUROPEAN NETWORK
Harvestore puts together some of the main actors of science and technology across Europe. Research, technology centers and advanced industries from 6 different countries have joined their efforts with the goal of opening-up a new technology paradigm in the world of IoT.
At the edge of science and technology
Nanoioncs and Iontronics
With Harvestore, we will fabricate new artificial materials with superior performance. Fast electrical conduction and high charge storage capacity will be achieved by taking advantage of nanoscale engineering.
Advanced science and mainstream fabrication techniques will be bridged by the use of silicon technology. Silicon combines unique properties of manufacturability, abundance and low environmental impact.
Harvestore partners will be present at Solid State Ionics Conference which is taking place in Pyeongchang (South Korea), from June 16 to June 21:
- Monday 16/6 h 9:10, keynote talk by Albert Tarancon: "The role of grain boundaries in MIEC electrodes"
- Monday 16/6 h 18:00, poster presented by A. Tarancon : " In-situ ellipsometry study of the defect chemistry in La1-xSrxFeO3-δ thin films"
- Tuesday 17/6 h 18:00, poster presented by C. Pirovano: "In-situ Raman Spectroscopy: a tool to measure the oxygen exchange properties in oxide-ion conductors"
Harvestore will be present at next E-MRS Fall meeting (Warsaw, Sept. 16th to 19th) with a special session within the symposium A: "Ion-related phenomena in nanoscale oxide systems: from fundamentals to applications". Contributions from several project partners will be presented. Click here for the full list of invited speakers and for more info.
The deadline for the abstracts' submission is May 20th: hurry up to stay up-to-date with the world of Nanoioncs!
