Next generation harvesters promises environment friendly material suitable for medical field also. This paper reviews recent energy harvester for self-powered Microsystems and propose ZnO piezoelectric material for next generation harvesters. In addition to this, Vibration-powered generators are typically subjected to various design related issues which are addressed in this paper.Power can be generated from various environmental sources such as ambient heat, light, acoustic noise, radio waves, and vibration. Piezoelectric based harvester extract energy from the freely available ambient sources i.e. vibration or motion energy. The vibration energy can be converted to electrical energy by the use of piezoelectric PZT, ZnO, AlNGaAs cemented to micro cantilever. Piezoelectric electrodes play a vital role in energy extraction with higher efficiency .Piezoelectric-type harvesters have the highest reported energy density per volume. Furthermore, piezoelectric materials have an inherent capability of converting the mechanical energy into electrical energy, eliminating the need for external magnetic fields, complicated switching systems, and architectural design complexities. In this paper we have reviewed the work carried out by researchers during last few years. This review paper helps to new comers to decide best structure, material and approach to carry out their research work. Results obtained show a good scope for MEMS harvesters in numerous fields including medical field was far away because of poisonous piezoelectric material.
