Center for Energy Harvesting Materials and Systems (CEHMS)

CEHMS center members specialize in materials, structural dynamics, electronics and storage covering micro-scale to macro-scale systems.

CEHMS consortiums accomplishes excellence in energy harvesting research by:

  • Conducting industry-driven projects with an objective of transitioning the laboratory prototypes into commercial products
  • Developing state-of-the laboratories across the multiple partner institutions with access to most relevant equipment’s
  • Bringing national and international expertise together to address challenges from materials level to system design
  • Hiring a talented pool of undergraduate and graduate students, post docs, and technical staff.

CEHMS is an education consortium and applied research center consisting of:
