A novel Optical RECTENNA design is presented in this paper to operate in S-band communication. We propose a new method of combining antennas and solar cells to collect and transmit optical and radio frequency signals respectively. 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. A three topologies of rectifying circuits are proposed in the present work. The parametric study has been shown that the efficiency RF/DC conversion can reach 66% for an input power of 10dBm and a load resistance of 3kΩ.
