X- Seminar 2024系列学术活动第1期—Advanced Wireless Technologies for Next-Generation Bioelectronics



Beginning with the first implantable pacemaker built in 1958, wireless technologies have gained widespread adoption in bioelectronic devices for diagnostics and therapy. However, conventional systems rely on cumbersome components such as antennas, waveguides and phased arrays to control the propagation of electromagnetic fields, which, in turn, incur substantial energy demands and limit system performance. In this talk, I describe our works on advanced wireless technologies that enable miniaturized, robust and high-performance wireless bioelectronic systems. We demonstrate applications of these technologies for next-generation bioelectronics, including wireless networking, sensing, and powering.
