Bottom Line: Power transfer was done by magnetic induction coupling method, by placing one of the inductors of the Maxwell-Wien bridge circuit and the inductor of the implant in close proximity.The Maxwell-Wien bridge circuit was biased with a 10 MHz sinusoidal signal.In order to have a proper inductive coupling link, special care must be taken when placing the two coils in proximity to avoid misalignment between them.

ABSTRACT
An analysis of the effect of distance and alignment between two magnetically coupled coils for wireless power transfer in intraocular pressure measurement is presented. For measurement purposes, a system was fabricated consisting of an external device, which is a Maxwell-Wien bridge circuit variation, in charge of transferring energy to a biomedical implant and reading data from it. The biomedical implant is an RLC tank circuit, encapsulated by a polyimide coating. Power transfer was done by magnetic induction coupling method, by placing one of the inductors of the Maxwell-Wien bridge circuit and the inductor of the implant in close proximity. The Maxwell-Wien bridge circuit was biased with a 10 MHz sinusoidal signal. The analysis presented in this paper proves that wireless transmission of power for intraocular pressure measurement is feasible with the measurement system proposed. In order to have a proper inductive coupling link, special care must be taken when placing the two coils in proximity to avoid misalignment between them.

Mentions: The implant was fabricated in the Microelectronics Laboratory facility from the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE). A 7.5 μm layer of HD Microsystems PI-2610 polyimide was deposited on a silicon wafer and then cured as advised by the manufacturer. A 30 μm thick copper coil was then placed over the polyimide layer and a final 7.5 μm layer of polyimide was deposited on top to fully encapsulate the inductor. The device was taken into a final curing process and then released from the silicon wafer as shown in Figure 8.
