Hiba Murali and Evan Shi have won Presidential Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) travel grants from Georgia Tech to present their RF energy-harvesting work at the IEEE International Conference on RFID 2018 in Orlando, FL next month. These student researchers have been studying transparent rectenna technology for harvesting microwave power beamed from space. The work could enable low-cost collections stations for space solar power, delivering green energy to the grid while allowing multiple uses for the collection site. Congratulations, Evan and Hiba!

This undergraduate technical report was one of the first attempts to measure and characterize TWDP fading. Sophisticated work for just a summer undergraduate project, Xan (now physicist Dr. Henderson) managed to measure and characterize some complicated signal strength distributions in the back RF lab of the Prop Group.
