- Analysis of state of the art technology
- Understanding several issues in designing conventional flexible RF/Light energy harvesters
- Embodiment of uni-planar flexible RF/Light energy harvester
- Quasi-lumped passive components on uni-planar transmission line
- Broad-band impedance matching

○ Thermal energy harvester on fabric and flexible power management module
- Decreasing both thickness and area of TEG
- Reducing heat loss and enhancing flexibility of TEG
- Environmental analysis of thermal energy harvester (according to indoor, outdoor, momentum, and clothing)
- Design of central power management system (CPMS) on 50μm-flexible film
- Flexible power management module consisting of CPMS, low power system, and micro energy cell
▶ Wearable hybrid RF/Light/Thermal energy harvester
- Sacking up RF/Light energy harvester on TEG
- Performance optimization of RF energy harvester with human body.
- Environmental examination in a real-life indoor or outdoor and comparison of the results
Expected Contribution ○ Development of energy harvesting technique
