At the 11th annual IEEE International Conference on RFID (IEEE RFID), four graduate students in Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering Matt Reynolds’ Lab were honored with the 2017 Best Poster Award. The team, composed of Jose Tomas Arenas, James Rosenthal, Eleftherios Kampianakis and Apoorva Sharma, investigates wireless neural recording and stimulation devices for neuroprosthetics applications.

Their award winning work, titled “A Dual-Band Wireless Power Transfer and Backscatter Communication Approach for Implantable Neuroprosthetic Devices,” describes their approach to high data transfer rates while reducing power consumption by a factor of 100 over conventional Wi-Fi.

The IEEE RFID conference is the premier conference for exchanging technical research in RFID and allows researchers to share, discuss and witness research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications, including energy harvesting, Internet of Things (IoT), localization, and security.

Congratulations to the team!
