Engineer Designs Self-Powered Nanoscale Devices That Never Need New Batteries
It’s relatively simple to build a device capable of detecting wireless signals if you don’t mind making one that consumes lots of power. It’s not so easy to design energy-efficient devices that function as well as the components they replace, or to do it at the nano scale.
That’s what Peter Kinget, a professor of electrical engineering, works on. He and his colleagues at theEngineering School are attempting to build self-powered systems using nanoscale devices that can transmit and receive wireless signals using so little power that their batteries never need replacing…>>>more
