Tunable Ultrasonic Energy Harvesting for Implantable Biosensors and Medical Devices

Abstract : This work reports a tunable ultrasonic energy harvesting (UEH) device capable of high power output and/or large bandwidth based on concentric piezoelectric ring-shaped structures. Two different designs are presented: (1) the single ring-shaped UEH (r-UEH), and (2) concentric r-UEHs. Concentric r-UEHs can save space and therefore can provide benefits in powering low-power implantable biosensors and medical devices. This paper presents results of simulation studies and initial experiments of a single r-UEH.
