Abstract


In this paper, a novel Optical RECTENNA design is presented to operate in S-band communication. We propose a new method to merge antennas and solar cells where optical and radio-frequency signals are combined in a mesh solar cell antenna. In this work, we determined the electrical power collected, it can be used for the polarization of a diode or a low-noise amplifier in a receiver block thus simulation results provides a gain of 6.74dBi at 2.9 GHz with an effective return loss of -33.62dB and radiated power of 7.08mW. These good results make it possible to use the antenna particularly in point-to-point communication systems.The present work aims to propose a three topologies of rectifying circuits. The parametric study has been shown that the efficiency can reach 66% for an input power of 10dBm and a load resistance of 3kΩ.
