Energy Harvesting from waste heat using wave nature of the heat is a promising technology for the future of green energy. Nanoantenna combined with high-speed Metal/Insulator/Metal diode known as rectenna is able to couple mid-Infrared (IR) waves and rectify the AC signal to DC. The behavior of the materials in mid-IR change with frequency, choosing suitable insulator will increase the cut-off frequency of the device. Substrate effects are studied to have the best match between computation and measurements.
