Wireless Pyroelectric Energy Harvesting
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/24/2018

Opportunity Description

Wireless Pyroelectric Energy Harvesting Harvesting energy from a rapidly varying heat source using the pyroelectric effect has yet to be fully understood. This research opportunity aims to explore the feasibility of pyroelectric energy harvesting for transferring energy over long distances. The candidate will be expected to design, assemble, and maintain an experiment that demonstrates the feasibility of wireless energy transfer via a pyroelectric conversion mechanism by modifying commercially available components. The candidate will then use the experiment to identify the underlying materials and engineering limitations and recommend approaches to improve energy harvesting performance.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
