Northwestern Medicine and Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering scientists have developed what is being called the world’s smallest wearable, battery-free device to measure light. The technology enables scientists to measure exposure to light across multiple wavelengths. The device is as about as thick in diameter as a credit card and is about the size of an M&M. It is also solar powered. Researchers said the device monitored therapeutic UV light in clinical phototherapy booths for psoriasis and atopic dermatitis as well as blue light phototherapy for newborns with jaundice in t...

(Northwestern University) The world's smallest wearable, battery-free and virtually indestructible device has been developed to measure exposure to light across multiple wavelengths, from the ultra violet to visible and even infrared parts of the solar spectrum. Smaller than an M&M, the device can optimize treatment of neonatal jaundice, skin diseases, seasonal affective disorder and reduce risk of sunburns and skin cancer. It can record up to three separate wavelengths of light at one time.

We present optical metrology approaches, optoelectronic designs, and wireless modes of operation that serve as the basis for miniature, low-cost, and battery-free devices for precise dosimetry at multiple wavelengths. These platforms use a system on a chip with near-field communication functionality, a radio frequency antenna, photodiodes, supercapacitors, and a transistor to exploit a continuous accumulation mechanism for measurement. Experimental and computational studies of the individual components, the collective systems, and the performance parameters highlight the operating principles and design considerations. Eval...
