Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate ways to supply low power to MEMS sensors and actuators that can be embedded inside host materials and membranes without adding more physical devices inside the material. These host materials can be low cost polymers, nylon and any other type of plastic composite laminates. Such type of materials that can be used in various engineering applications especially in bioengineering where the device is embedded inside human body. With battery less devices, wireless RF power harvesting seems to be the unique ideal source for low power. The study shows feasibility and identify practices.
