Energy harvesting by a reconfigurable surface

This paper proposes methods for a reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) to harvest ambient radio frequency energy without coordination with the source. The RIS sequentially adjusts its element phases based on received power measurements to maximize harvested energy. The proposed algorithm converges to the optimal solution for continuous phase shifts. For discrete phase shifts, it achieves near-optimal performance and outperforms a random phase method.
