David Arnold's Research Group

Primary tabs

Group lead: 

Dr. Arnold's Research group specializes in:

  • Micro/nanostructured magnetic materials
  • Magnetic microsystems and electromechanical transducers
  • Biomedical applications of magnetic systems
  • Compact (<100 W) power/energy systems (wireless power, energy harvesting, interface circuits)

This diverse group of researchers and students are participating in projects fabricating new microwave/millimeter wave magnetic materials and components, exploring new wireless charging systems for wearables/implantables, developing new magnetic tools for biomedical exploration, inventing novel magnetoelectric antennas for next-gen communication systems, and deploying IoT systems for enhancing food crop production.
