Measured frequency response of our energy harvesters; insets are the relative displacements at resonance from FEM simulations: (a) the conventional cantilever device has a single voltage peak (dash line, 7.5 V/g at 35.8 Hz), whereas our device (body beam of  = 6 cm) has two voltage peaks (solid line, the first peak: 8.33 V/g at 10 Hz; the second peak: 1.85 V/g at 88.1 Hz). The first peak corresponds to the cantilever fundamental and the second peak from body beam vibration. (b) The generated voltage peaks using an 8 cm long body beam (circles, the first peak: 6.45 V/g at 8.8 Hz; the second peak: 6.12 V/g at 55.8 Hz; the third peak: 5.64 V/g at 67 Hz), a 7 cm long body beam (triangles, the first peak: 6.63 V/g at 9 Hz; the second peak: 2.39 V/g at 63.2 Hz; the third peak: 0.51 V/g at 86 Hz), and a 6 cm long body beam (solid line, same as for (a)).
