A Rectifying Antenna (Rectenna) is one of the most important components for a wireless power transmission. It has been developed for many applications such as Space Solar Power System (SSPS), and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) etc. The Rectenna consisting of RF-DC conversion circuits and receiving antennas needs to be designed for high conversion efficiency to achieve efficient power transmission. we try to design the mw-Class RF-DC conversion circuit using half-and full-wave rectification. The measured conversion efficiencies is 59.3 % and 65.3 % athalf- and full-wave type, respectively. And the full-wave type has lower 2nd harmonic reflection coefficient.
