A Study on Biosensor and Wireless Power Generator for Marine Information Acquisition Using Dielectric Elastomer
This study investigates a biosensor and wireless power generator that is constructed using an energy harvester with a dielectric elastomer. The biosensor and UWSN (Underwater Wireless Sensor Network) have been considered in many studies because it is important to obtain information from a seawater or underwater environment in order to secure resources or to predict meteorological phenomena. However, a sensor node in the UWSN operates using acoustic waves in order to communicate with other sensor nodes, and these acoustic waves usually spend 100 times more energy than the RF (Radio Frequency) waves due to the transformation medium (seawater). Therefore, the power source for the sensor node is highly important. In this study, the sensor and energy harvester are made from acrylic elastomer and carbon black, and after that, the modified biosensor and energy harvester are experimentally tested in order to confirm the sensitivity of the biosensor and to improve the energy efficiency.
