Abstract
Wireless power transfer (WPT) is regarded as a disruptive technological paradigm to prolong the lifetime of energy-constrained devices, such as the ones used in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Far-field WPT is based on the transmission/reception of propagating electromagnetic waves, including radio frequency (RF) and light waves.  However, as it will be highlighted in this talk, lightwave WPT is fundamentally different to RF, due to the divergent channels characteristics, transmission/reception equipment, and energy harvesting (EH) model, among others. Lightwave WPT creates many new challenges, including the increase of the EH efficiency, the optimal design of the optical devices, and the support of multiuser scenarios, which call for an interdisciplinary approach. Moreover, simultaneous lightwave information and power transfer (SLIPT) will be presented and compared to the corresponding RF-based technology, while future research directions will also be discussed.

Zeno Geradts
Netherlands Forensic Institute
Netherlands
 

Brief Bio
Zeno Geradts is a senior forensic scientist at the Netherlands Forensic Institute of the Ministry of Security and Justice at the Forensic Digital Biometrics Traces departement. He is expert witness in the area of forensic (video) image processing and biometrics (facial comparison and biometrics such as hands, feet and clothes) . Within the team Forensic Big Data Analysis he works in research on deep learning and images and video is also working within the European Project ASGARD on Forensic big data analyis. He is nominated as President Elect at the American Academy of Forensic Science in 2018. He is also chairman of the ENFSI Forensic IT Working group. From September 1st 2014, he is professor on Forensic Data Science by special appointment at the University of Amsterdam for 1 day a week. Prof.dr. Zeno Geradts works since 1991 at the Netherlands Forensic Institute as a forensic scientist. Since 1997 he works at the digital evidence departement. In 2002 he received a PhD from the University of Utrecht based on research on computational comparing of forensic images. At the AAFS (American Academy of Forensic Sciences) he has been chairman of the Engineering Section and since 2008-2010 chairman of the section Digital Evidence and Multimedia, he was elected by the section as member of the Board of Directors of the AAFS from 2010-2013. He is elected as Vice President of the AAFS 2015-2016 and 2015-2016 as Treasurer. He is chairman of the ENFSI Forensic IT working group. He published many papers in forensic journals and contributions to books and is active on casework as expert witness and projects in digital evidence.
