As a powder metallurgy technique, compression shearing method at room temperature (COSME-RT) is used for making metamagnetic shape memory alloy (MSMA) thin plates. COSME-RT is a method for consolidating a thin plate from powder raw material by a certain kind of dynamic process that simultaneously applies a compression stress and a shearing strain to a powder material at room temperature and in ambient atmosphere. A plate with 50 μm thickness fabricated by COSME-RT using ground Ni-Co-Mn-In sputtered film powder is cut into 2 mm × 2 mm × 0.05 mm and then applied to a thermal energy harvesting device. This device generates an average power density of 68 μW・cm-3 and a peak power of 0.95 mW・cm-3, which makes it possible to supply a small amount of electric power to a certain type of sensor or small sensor device.
