Acoustic Metamaterials and Metasurfaces for Energy Harvesting

Abstract : Phononic crystals (PCs) and acoustic metamaterials (AMMs), well-known as artificially engineered materials, demonstrate anomalous properties and fascinating capabilities in various kinds of wave manipulations, which have breached the classical barriers and significantly broaden the horizon of the whole acoustics field. As a novel category of AMMs, acoustic metasurfaces share the functionalities of AMMs in exotic yet compelling wave tailoring. Inspired by these extraordinary capabilities, innovative concepts of scavenging acoustic energy with AMMs are primarily conceived and sufficiently explored in this thesis. Generally, a planar AMM acoustic energy harvesting (AEH) system and acoustic metasurfaces AEH systems are theoretically and numerically proposed and analyzed in this dissertation. At first, taking advantage of the properties of band gap and wave localization of defect mode, the AEH system based on planar AMM composed of a defected AMM and a structured piezoelectric material has been proposed and sufficiently analyzed. Secondly, subwavelength (λ/8) and ultrathin (λ/15) metasurfaces with various lateral configurations, composed of labyrinthine and Helmholtz-like elements, respectively, are designed and analyzed to effectively realize the acoustic focusing and AEH. This thesis provides new paradigms of AEH with AMMs and acoustic metasurfaces, which would contribute to the industries of micro electronic devices and noise abatement as well
