Energy scavenging - also known as Energy harvesting - has recently drawn huge interests in both academia and industry. The concept is to power micro-electronic devices by gathering energy from the environment surrounding the device itself. It is a potential solution for powering various low power electronic devices for autonomous systems; that is, maintenance free systems. In this thesis we will propose a new approach to harvest energy in a microsystem.
