Energy Harvesting: CNT Antenna 

SWNT based infrared energy harvesting device 

  • Developed rectifying SWNT antennas having the potential for absorption of far and mid-Infrared incident light 

  • Developed both Zig-Zag and linear designs

  • Rectifying circuit consists of commercially available MIM diodes operating in the W band

  • Harvesting energy wherever there is temperature difference larger than 5 degrees
