Abstract

Energy can be conserved by reusing what has already been spent. Such type of energy is readily available in the electromagnetic form (ambient RF energy). Signals broadcasted from AM, FM, cellular base stations and millions of other wireless devices can be converted to DC power. However, the main roadblock in this field of research is the level of power that ambient radiation carries. High efficiency antennas and rectifier circuits are required to harvest a fair amount of energy that can be used by low power devices. This paper presents the design of a novel multiband fractal antenna and a rectifier circuit that can be used to harvest ambient RF energy.
