This paper presents the design and experimental evaluation of a long-range solar powered sensor-enhanced radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. The tag antenna is a multiport microstrip patch with an overlay of thin-film solar cells for energy harvesting. A second port is allocated on the patch antenna for supplementary energy harvesting from the RF(More)
A circular polarized patch antenna for UHF RFID tag-based sensor applications is presented, with the circular polarization (CP) generated by a new antenna shape, an asymmetric stars shaped slotted microstrip patch antenna (CP-ASSSMP). Four stars etched on the patch allow the antenna's size to be reduced by close to 20%. The proposed antenna is matched with(More)
