Abstract: Wireless Power transfer using electric and magnetic near-fields have found their use in a plethora of applications, biomedical implants being one of them. The stringent regulation on size and safety imposed by the biomedical implants necessitates a highly efficient power transfer link design. The added challenges of misalignment and motion artifact very common in biomedical implants need to be addressed as well.In this dissertation, we present a detailed analysis of near ¿field (inductive and capacitive) wireless power transfer links and evaluate them for use in biomedical implants. We propose new techniques to improve the power transfer efficiency of transcutaneous links and overcome the challenges posed by the implant application.
