ECE PhD Defense: "Physical Layer Design and Implementation of a Biometric Authentication System using Galvanic Coupling Intra-body Communication," William Jerome Tomlinson, Jr.

Abstract: The emerging field of Intra-Body Communication (IBC) promises innovation in both the commercial and medical domain, by initiating data transfer from within and across the body surface to specific target devices. Traditional forms of RF-based communication face drawbacks in terms of high signal absorption within tissues that can potentially result in security and privacy issues, owing to its omnidirectional radiation. Instead, we propose the use of Galvanic Coupling (GC), wherein a weak electrical current (~0.5mA) is used, resulting in a significant increase in energy efficiency...
