Micropower material development plays a major role in providing power source to wireless sensor nodes (WSN), which significantly helps in measuring nearly any quantity in a spatially disperse way to allow time-synchronized correlation over several distances. Power requirements of wireless sensor nodes are functions of four significant factors, including sending, receiving, polling, and sleeping. The addressing issues of grid power generation and distribution, several micropower work falling in the harvesting domain, for WSN applications, may offer advantages from scavenging methodologies. Energy scavenging also refers to environments are unknown or irregular, while energy harvesting refers to situation where the ambient energy sources are uniquely characterized and regular. The development of micropower material should also be informed by device requirements, size limitations, and manufacturing cost constraints.
