Since these two review articles, Wang et al.  have developed three variations of a MEMS diaphragm-based, mass-spring-damper mechanical generator that is fully batch-fabricated. 6 9 10 nW/cm3/g2. Wang et al. claims that many design improvements can be made to improve the performance, including increasing the number of coil turns, positioning the magnet and coil closer, using thinner diaphragms for more compliance, increasing the centre proof mass, using strong magnets, and/or creating altogether different structures.
5. In contrast, the active case uses an external force to move the magnet between reservoirs, and the external magnetic field is cycled using electromagnets. The magnetic susceptibility of ferromagnets is dependent on temperature. This means that the change in magnetization is greater when the ferromagnet is at a low 32 3 Other Thermomechanical Heat Engines Fig. 5 Illustration of a basic thermomagnetic cycle indicating Fm, the magnetic force, and Fs, the restoring spring force temperature than at a high temperature.
