Though conceived nearly 40 years ago, rectennae are still a work in progress. Developing a rectenna (a nano-antenna and rectifier/diode), that can operate at the 30 GHz range, is the goal of CERC research. A rectenna is used at the receiving end of wireless energy transfer.
Advanced polymers, nano-meter thin layers and asymmetric super capacitor configurations are also being researched at CERC. The main goal is to develop super capacitors with high energy densities and low self-discharge.
