Abstract

A compact rectenna suitable for the tracking harmonic radar dedicated for small-sized creatures is designed and implemented. To efficiently harvest the RF power and radiate the doubled harmonic frequency for the tag of the harmonic radar system, the dualband 4-/8-GHz antenna is designed and implemented. The average gains at the two bands are -1.03 dBi and -2.37 dBi, respectively. Moreover, a two-stage Dickson rectifier at 4 GHz of a compact size 8.5×8.5 mm 2 has the dc output voltage larger than 1 V as the input RF power higher than -5.5 dBm. The rectenna featuring a miniaturized size of 18×17 mm 2 has been examined by a test system equipped with 3 identical CW transmitters.
