The same antenna, designed to exploit its far-field properties for communication purposes, can be suitably configured for simultaneously realizing wireless power transfer via its near-field properties. In this paper we analyze the near-field behavior of a pair of closely coupled transmitting and receiving dual-band printed monopole antennas, suitable for cell phones applications. The proposed architecture is based-on a frequency division approach, operating in the GSM900 and GSM1800 bands for… CONTINUE READING
