Research Description

My current research focuses on using vector modulation, such as quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), to increase the communication bandwidth for low-frequency passive devices that operate in the magnetoquasistatic near field. Utilizing this communication scheme at a nominal operating frequency of 2.4 MHz, we can increase the communication bandwidth to 17% of the center frequency, compared to the 3% bandwidth usage of commercial NFC devices operating at 13.56 MHz. This communication scheme opens the door for high-bandwidth battery-free sensing devices with an essentially unlimited lifetime.
