Workshop

The URSI-France 2016 Workshop, held under the sponsoring of the French Academy of Sciences, was dedicated to "Energy and Radio Science". The workshop has been held at CentraleSupélec, avenue de la Boulaie, Cesson-Sévigné, Ille et Vilaine, on March 15 and 16, 2016.

Without energy, nothing is possible. Energy is the catalyst of all natural phenomena and comes in a variety of forms. One of its fundamental properties is its indestructibility. It can't be created, it can't disappear, but it can be converted from one form to another. Electromagnetic energy is one of its most remarkable forms as it is transmitted wirelessly and the universe is filled with it.

In our modern societies, energy remains the engine of our applications and uses, although the methodologies and technologies for harvesting, storing, transporting, converting the energy and its exploitation have experienced major evolutions in the last decades. In the domain of radio science and information society, new technologies are less and less energy greedy. Remote power and energy harvesting methods are complementing batteries and eventually replace them. Nevertheless, an overall evaluation of the power consumption of digital systems is to draw up and put into perspective with innovative solutions. The ambient energy in its various forms, solar, radio waves, thermal, kinetic..., is an endless and renewable resource that should enable the development of green technologies and the implementation of new paradigms.

In this evolving context, both in terms of technologies and concepts, URSI France has devoted its Workshop 2016 to the topic "Energy and Radio Science". On this Workshop, we are reviewed the techniques for electromagnetic energy harvesting, conversion, storage, optimal management... The presentations have covered both basic and conceptual aspects as well as technological developments and applications. The JS16 was organized around the topics hereinafter, but the list was not exhaustive.

Topics:

  • Energy Harvesting 
  • Low Power Radiocommunications 
  • Wireless Power Transfer 
  • Components and Systems for the Energy in Radio Science 
  • Management-Storage-Optimisation of Energy Resource
  • Energy in Digital Systems
  • ...
