An electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesting application based on metamaterials is introduced. This application is operating at the the industrial, scientific, and medical band (2.40 GHz), which is especially chosen because of its wide usage area. A square ring resonator (SRR) which has two gaps and two resistors across the gaps on it is used. Chip resistors are used to deliver the power to any active component that requires power. Transmission and reflection characteristics of the metamaterial absorber for energy harvesting application are theoretically investigated and 83.6% efficient energy harvesting application is realized. To prove that this study can be used for different sensor applications other than harvesting, a temperature sensor configuration is developed that can be applied to other sensing applications.

Gunduz, Ozan T.; Sabah, Cumali (2015-09-09)
We propose and examine an enhanced version of a multi-band metamaterial absorber for an energy harvesting application. The numerical results of the multi-band absorption characteristics of no-load conditions are presented and compared with the loading conditions. At most % 50 of the incoming wave energy whose correspondence is 0.25 Watt is converted to real power at the resistive loads at 5.88 GHz by the usage of 2000 ohms loads. In order to evaluate the harvesting efficiency, three different types of effic...

In this study, electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesting by using metamaterial absorber is numerically explained. Operation frequency is 2.40 GHz since it is the industrical scientific and medical (ISM) band. This band is especially chosen due to most of the customer electronic devices are working in this band. Split ring resonator that have two splits on it used in this study, chip resistors are placed on these splits for wireless energy transfer to the devices. 83.6% efficient electromagnetic energy harvesti...
Tunable Graphene Integrated Perfect Metamaterial Absorber for Energy Harvesting and Visible Light Communication
Sabah, Cumali (2018-02-09)
Tunable graphene integrated metamaterial absorber is proposed for energy harvesting and visible light communication. The structure provides unity absorption in the visible spectrum in which it can be used perfect absorber for energy harvesting. In addition, it also provides tunability because of the graphene conductivity to be used as photoconductive or thermal switch for visible light communication.
Implementation of a perfect metamaterial absorber into multi-functional sensor applications
Perfect metamaterial absorber (MA)-based sensor applications are presented and investigated tigated in the microwave frequency range. It is also experimentally analyzed and tested to verify the behavior of the MA. Suggested perfect MA -based sensor has a simple configuration which introduces flexibility to sense the dielectric properties of a material and the pressure of the medium. The investigated applications include pressure and density sensing. Besides, numerical simulations verify that the suggested s...

This paper presents a wireless sensor node (WSN) system where an electromagnetic (EM) energy harvester is utilized for charging its rechargeable batteries while the system is operational. The capability and the performance of an in-house low-frequency EM energy harvester for charging rechargeable NiMH batteries were experimentally verified in comparison to a regular battery charger. Furthermore, the power consumption of MicaZ motes, used as the WSN, was evaluated in detail for different operation conditions...
