An electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesting application based on metamaterials is introduced. This application is operating at the the industrial, scientific, and medical band (2.40 GHz), which is especially chosen because of its wide usage area. A square ring resonator (SRR) which has two gaps and two resistors across the gaps on it is used. Chip resistors are used to deliver the power to any active component that requires power. Transmission and reflection characteristics of the metamaterial absorber for energy harvesting application are theoretically investigated and 83.6% efficient energy harvesting application is realized. To prove that this study can be used for different sensor applications other than harvesting, a temperature sensor configuration is developed that can be applied to other sensing applications.
