Our daily lives are surrounded by electromagnetic wave. It includes not only radio wave utilized in the data transmission but also heat radiation from our body and sunlight. We are widely conducting basic & applied researches with the aim of social contribution using the electromagnetic field; Basic researches are wireless power transfer under water and development of the resonator with high quality factor used in RF filter. Applied research is realization of the two-way communication module that can work by wireless power transfer.

Theme1:Wireless Power Transfer under Water

Power station under seawater

Autonomous underwater vehicles are desired to charge battery and communicate information under water in order to improve operation efficiency. We have an ambitious goal of developing the wireless power and data transfer system for operation underwater, focusing on the capacitive coupling with a simple structure and low leakage of field. So as to require a high power charging in this case, we are also investigating an elucidation of high-frequency property in fresh water and seawater.

Theme2:Next-Generation Wireless RF Circuits

Base station for next-generation network

Various methods in order to achieve high-speed and large-capacity wireless communications are developed such as Massive-MIMO, In-band full-duplex, and OAM. We aim to develop the RF circuits that are key technologies to realize these methods. As we image the application to a wide target range from portable devices to base station in small cell, we are developing value-added solutions such as high tunability and high power capability corresponding to the targets.

Theme3:Wireless Harness

Battery-less wireless sensor system

Numerous sensors are installed in various facilities and equipment for the purpose to support safe and secure life. In particular, power supply by wireless power transfer is expected for the sensors in dangerous places such as infrastructures in factory and power plant. We are developing a unique system with the pseudo-shielded space, which makes it possible to confine the electromagnetic field in the space and communicate with the sensors outside the space.
