Ambient energy harvesting technique is one of the most promising solutions for powering self-sustainable devices for sensing or communication applications. Energy harvesting technique from electromagnetic waves has unique characteristics and has been extensively studied in recent years. It has a wide range of potential applications for RFID, implantable/wearable devices, wireless sensor networks, and the Internet of Things (IoT) and so on.

Wireless Power Transfer journal is launching a new special issue on Recent Advances in Ambient Energy Harvesting from Electromagnetic Waves. On behalf of the editorial board of the Wireless Power Transfer journal, we invite contributions (original articles or review papers) in related research areas. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Radio frequency energy harvesting
  • Rectenna design for energy harvesting
  • Antenna (array) design for energy harvesting
  • Rectifier design for RF/DC or AC/DC conversion
  • Magnetic field energy harvesting
  • Magnetic coil design techniques
  • Electric field energy harvesting
  • Voltage step up/down techniques
  • Energy harvesting for wearable and implantable and other medical devices
  • Energy harvesting for IoT and other automation related applications
  • Measurements and characterization of energy harvesting systems
  • Standardization and regulations of energy harvesting systems

We also invite contributions on recent advances in ambient energy harvesting towards next generation (5G/6G) wireless communications systems.

This special issue will prove valuable for both the scientific and industrial community. All papers will be fully peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in Wireless Power Transfer. 

Deadline for submission is 31st December 2019.
