Title: Electromagnetics in Brain-Machine Interface: Less Invasive and Non-Invasive

Abstract: Electromagnetics in medicine has played a crucial role in early diagnosis, long-term monitoring and medical treatment. Numerous applications in medical diagnostics and therapeutics ranging from cardiac pacemakers to emerging devices in visual prosthesis, brain computer interfaces and body area networks have spurred electronic engineers to propose new wireless medical devices. Wireless implantable medical devices (IMDs) provide an opportunity to improve the patient health monitoring and treatment. To extend the lifespan without incorporating a bulky battery and to facilitate the miniaturization of IMDs, the wireless power transfer (WPT) technology and antenna miniaturization and multifunction have played an essential role. On the other hand, smart wireless sensing has increasingly been adopted in medical applications for monitoring, detecting and tracking of medical condition developments. In this presentation, solutions and developments on WPT, antenna and wireless sensing for biomedical applications will be presented.
