Description

Practical Rectenna Design: In this presentation we will give hands on instructions and tips to construct a 2.45GHz rectenna. We will start with designing a 50 Ohm rectangular microstrip patch antenna and realize this antenna on FR4 using copper tape, a ruler and a knife. After tuning the antenna to 50 Ohm, we will design a rectifying circuit using discrete Schottky diodes. For analyzing and designing the circuit we will make use of freeware circuit software. We will determine the input impedance and design a impedance matching circuit to connect the antenna to the rectifying circuit. Finally we will load the rectenna with a led and demonstrate the rectenna, using the signals leaked through the door of a microwave oven.
