Minimally invasive selective stimulation of biological tissue within the body can be achieved by implanting a small rectifying diode and then applying an RF field by means of electrodes or a coil on or near the surface of the body. A theoretical analysis of a simplified model consisting of a cylindrically symmetrical unit implanted in an isotropic homogeneous medium of conductivity ¿and permittivity ¿ and exposed to a uniform RF field relates the dc component of electrode current to the detailed geometry of the electrodes of the implanted unit and to the amplitude of the applied field.
