Abstract—Rectenna (rectifier antenna) is a device that functions as an electromagnetic energy harvester that works by changing the RF waves that have shaped AC into DC electrical energy that is able to save and as a source of energy electronic devices or other recipients. Rectenna using the energy harvesting is in fabrication, can be applied in the 1700-2650 MHz frequency`s which include working frequencies in GSM devices, CCTV and Wi-Fi devices. To obtain an electromagnetic wave that works at a frequency of 1700-2650 MHz it needs Ultra Wideband (UWB) antennas who are able to work at a frequency > 500MHz. The design process includes an antenna and a rectifier that is a calculation, simulation, fabrication, and measurement. Main materials of the antenna are Phenolic White Paper - FR4 with a dielectric constant (εr) = 3.9 and the rectifier circuit using Schottky diodes HSMS-2850.

Index Terms—Antenna, rectifier, ultra wideband.
