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: As it can be seen from Figure 10, the variations in voltage started to occur when the distance between coils was below approximately 8 mm. It is clear that for the system we proposed there was practically no magnetic induction when the distance between coils was beyond 10 mm since there were no voltage variations. For intraocular measurement, the distance between coils is a fixed variable, so in order to obtain a reliable measurement it is, therefore, of great importance to make sure that the distance between them will remain constant between measurements to avoid possible errors on the readings. Figure 11 shows the calculated mutual inductance between coils versus the distance between them.
