Georgia: Pictured is a card-like card printed from a normal inkjet printer that looks like a card and can generate electricity directly from radiation emitted from the 5G Tower. This card draws 6 microwatts of electricity at a distance of 180 meters or 600 feet from the Five G Tower.
Developed by Georgia Tech scientists, it is the world’s first 3D, card-like rectifying antenna that can draw electricity from the 5G Tower. Theoretically, wireless communication systems generate a lot of energy and it is said that future smartphones will be able to get 30% of their power from wireless networks.
The Georgia Tech team published the study in Scientific Reports. He has researched millimeter radio waves and developed the technology to draw electricity from it. But larger rectifying antennas are needed for more energy. Then the antlers have to be turned in the direction from which the radiation is emanating.
However, this invention will be able to remove batteries in millions of smartphones and small devices and use them in smart cities or smart agriculture. However, to solve many problems, a kind of part called a rootman lens has been inserted in the middle of the card. The lens divides the millimeter wave into high gain, wide and narrow angle radiation. Thanks to them, signals are received from everywhere without changing the direction of the radar.
Along with the rootman lens, the card is made so flexible that it can be twisted and the entire circuit can be printed from the printer. Although the card generates only a small amount of electricity, it can run small sensors, Internet of Things (IoT) and other small devices.
Georgia Tech experts are hopeful that their invention will revolutionize wireless technology and energy.
