This paper proposes a novel conceptual system of optical wireless power transfer (OWPT) between objects, which is different from the existing OWPT systems such that a single device—an optical transceiver—is employed. This optical transceiver, which is capable of both absorbing and emitting light, is fabricated from a metal halide perovskite known for its superior features that can help significantly reduce the whole system size and cost. The proposed system contributes to realizing a thing-to-thing OWPT network, in which surfaces of objects/things are covered by perovskite transceivers (fully or partially), enabling them to wirelessly charge or discharge from the others.
