Seminar Title: Electrodynamic Wireless Power Transmission to High Performance Rotating Magnet Receivers

Speaker: Vernon Crasto, IMG, UF

Time: Dec 1st , 2023 @ 12:00pm

Abstract: In this seminar, the assembly, analysis, and characterization of a five-phase, rotating-magnet electrodynamic wireless power transmission (EWPT) receiver is reported. Additionally, power transfer to a constellation of multiple receivers is demonstrated, indicating the ability to additively combine multiple EWPT receivers for scalable power solutions.

Ultra-compact Magnetoelectric Nanowire Antennas

We are developing ultra-compact antennas, where the antenna size is much smaller than the electromagnetic wavelength.

Pervasive wireless connectivity is a must for today’s interconnected world.  Many MHz-GHz communication systems require antennas with physical sizes that can be much larger than the entire size of the system.  It is difficult to achieve good antenna performance if the size of the antenna is less than 1/10ththe electromagnetic wavelength (e.g. minimum of 3 cm at 1 GHz)

Rapid On-site Detection of Fecal Indicating Bacteria for Coastal Water Quality Monitoring

Detection of fecal indicating bacteria plays an important role in water quality monitoring to ensure safe human water contact and/or drinking.  Specifically, epidemiological studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have shown strong correlations between illnesses and bacteria concentrations of Enterococci and E.
