Wireless Biotelemetry using Ultra-wideband Communications

This research plan to investigate the trade-off that must occur to develop a safe and effective biotelemetry wireless link.

Having access to a high data rate, low powered, wireless transceiver would be extremely helpful for Neuroscience applications. There are significant challenges in designing of such transceiver due to the in-body or on-body tissue absorption of electromagnetic energy, propagation loss of the dispersive environment, path loss of the free space channel and receiver sensitivity limits. This research plans to investigate the trade-offs that must occur to develop a safe and effective biotelemetry wireless link. The goal is to develop an implantable UWB wireless transceivers and antenna which achieves high data rate transmission while implanted in biological material with low DC power consumption.
