The future of powering for small mobile electronic devices
Speaker(s) : Luca Gammaitoni (Université de Perugia)
The powering of small mobile devices is considered a topic of strategic importance for the Internet of things scenario and more general for the future of ICT. In this talk we discuss the energy transformation processes that affect the functioning of such devices and look into the future of energy harvesting technologies with special attention at the micro and nano information and communication devices.
Luca Gammaitoni is Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Perugia, in Italy and the director of the Noise in Physical Systems (NiPS) Laboratory. He is also the founder of Wisepower srl a university spin-off company. He obtained the PhD in Physics from the University of Pisa in 1990. Since then he has developed a wide international experience with collaborations both in Europe, Japan and the USA. His scientific interests span from noise phenomena in physical systems to non-equilibrium thermodynamics and energy transformations at micro and nanoscale.
