Magnetoelectric Power and Data Transfers to Millimeter-Scale Bioelectronic Implants
Professor Kaiyuan Yang
Rice University
Houston, TX, USA

Millimeter-scale wireless bioelectronic implants promise transformative applications in medicine, health, and scientific research. This talk focuses on an emerging wireless power and data transfer modality, namely magnetoelectrics, to enable miniaturized, safe, reliable, and battery-free bioelectronics. Fundamentals of magnetoelectric wireless power transfer and the latest progress in magnetoelectric-enabled implantable bioelectronic platforms will be covered in the talk.

Kaiyuan Yang is currently an Assistant Professor of ECE at Rice University, USA.
