This paper proposes a novel single frequency harmonic suppression antenna operating at 2.45 GHz for wireless energy transfer applications. The harmonic suppression antenna consists of antenna integrated with a low-pass filter that is called as filtenna. The filter helps to suppress the higher order harmonics. This single-frequency harmonic suppression antenna is useful for high RF to dc conversion efficiency.
