Project : wireless power transmission for biomedical implantable devices

This project aims to develop a smart Closed-Loop system for electrophysiology data acquisition in a free movement, this system includes ener-homecage equipped with magnetic resonance based in wireless power transmission (WPT), the implantable electronic device cannot use batteries as primary source of energy in long-term experiment, the wireless power and energy transfer rules out any risk of infection, as well as the need for invasive surgery for a battery change. In this systems the power must be delivered wirelessly across the skin with an inductive coupling formed by mutually coupled coils, the implantable part contains laser led driver circuit lead to the optogenetic stimulation, the energy consumption of the implantable device and increasing the Power Transfer Efficiency (PTE) and Power delivered to the load (PDL) are the main challenges in the design of a robust wireless power transmission (WPT) links for this application.
