6.4 Power Transmission

Power may be stored in, and converted among, many different forms, but the ultimate energy resource must be received from some external source by medical nanodevices (e.g., chemical energy from ingested food). The following discussion concentrates on acoustic (Section 6.4.1), electromagnetic (Section 6.4.2), and tethered (Section 6.4.3) power transmission, and closes with a brief description of dedicated energy organs (Section 6.4.4).
