Tech Talk: Harnessing magneto-inductive waves for wireless power transfer

If you are planning to attend the IEEE MTT-S Wireless Power Transfer Conference this week in Montreal, please come along to hear first-hand from our head of Science and Technology, Dr Irina Khromova, about the latest developments in wireless power technology. The topical wireless power transfer event brings together scientists and developers from academia and industry around the world.

Khromova’s session, titled “Harnessing magneto-inductive waves for wireless power transfer” will take place on Wednesday 6 June 2018 at 10:15 in room L-1710. The talk will be chaired by Maysam Ghovanloo from the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA.

During the session, Khromova will discuss:

  • Cutting-edge technology that allows for power and data transfer across large surfaces
  • How to transfer power and data using existing metamaterials made of coupled resonant elements
  • How multiple devices can be charged simultaneously using power at a single or few power-injection points
  • How Metaboards’ system is adapting to the environment through smart and dynamic control methods

This year’s show, which takes place from 3-7 June 2018 at the Polytechnique Montreal, Canada, will run in conjunction with two other major wireless power events, the IEEE PELS Workshop on Emerging Technologies: Wireless Power (WoW), and Wireless Power Congress of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). This will mark the inaugural and largest wireless power event in the world, Wireless Power Week (WPW).

WPTC aims to celebrate technical excellence and achievements of related materials, techniques, devices, circuits, antennas and systems in the field. Attendees to the show will learn about the advancement in wireless power theory, technologies and applications across the electromagnetic spectrum.
