1. A method for wireless communication at a user equipment (UE), comprising:
transmitting, via a first one or more antenna panels of the UE, an uplink signal in accordance with a full-duplex communication mode of the UE;
receiving, at a second one or more antenna panels of the UE, self-interference associated with the uplink signal; and
performing, based at least in part on active operation of the second one or more antenna panels for energy harvesting, an energy harvesting procedure at the second one or more antenna panels using the self-interference associated with the uplink signal.
