Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The next generation hungers for batteryless sensor devices. Efforts to demonstrate batteryless systems based on RF-to-DC power harvesters using rectifying antennas (rectennas) have been reported, but efficiency remains the issue. In this paper, we adopt a popular technique for building rectifiers; the voltage doubler configuration. We do thorough parameter investigation in Agilent’s ADS harmonic balance simulator and validated through measurement, we report those parameters responsible for high RF-to-DC conversion efficiency. We use Cockcroft-Walton voltage multiplier technique to scale up the output DC voltage and hence meet the sensor device target supply. An application demonstration example for such a high efficient rectenna for a batteryless sensor radio is presented.
