This paper reports a novel nonlinearity tuning method through sophisticated geometrical design for wideband energy harvesting application. By carefully controlling the thickness to length ratio of the planar spring beams, the nonlinear stiffness coefficient can be intentionally and precisely adjusted, while the linear stiffness coefficient can be kept unchanged. Thanks to the different effects on the linear and nonlinear parts, both the resonant frequency of the linear part and the bandwidth range of nonlinear vibration can be designed separately. As a proof of concept, MEMS-based electromagnetic vibrational energy harvesters employing the independent nonlinearity tuning method have been designed and fabricated. Both simulation and experiment were conducted to validate our method. At the acceleration of 0.5Â g, the micro-fabricated device is able to tune the operating bandwidth of the output voltage from 37Â Hz to as wide as 75Â Hz. This design can easily tune the length and thickness of the spring beams without changing the volume of the whole energy harvester device, which is compatible with MEMS batch fabrication process.
