E7166: No Wires Attached: Build a Wireless Energy Transfer Device to Light an LED in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
We will learn how radio waves transfer energy and information, then apply this knowledge to build a simple wireless energy transfer system which lights an LED. The device can be taken home. The class will include several experimental demonstrations to illustrate the black magic of electromagnetic waves.
