Increasing the coding capacity of chipless RFID tags is a key factor while considering the development of miniaturized tags. A novel hybrid coding technique by combining phase deviation and frequency position encoding is proposed here. A coding capacity of 22.9 bits is obtained simply with five resonators within a reduced dimension of 2 cm × 4 cm.(More)
This paper presents a new radio frequency identification (RFID) chipless tag that is highly compact and potentially low-cost. This tag has a lot of advantages, such as being fully printable on products since no ground plane is needed for fabrication. The actual issue of the chipless tag family having a single layer, that is, their detuning effect, is(More)
The design of a novel chipless radio frequency identification (RFID) tag, which is inkjet-printed on a polyimide substrate, is presented. It is shown that a silver nanoparticles-based ink can be combined with a resistive organic ink to create a tag having a “near-transparent” configuration. By adding some transparent elements, we obtain various(More)
A new chipless RF identification (RFID) tag design is presented in this paper to ease the detection of items in a real environment. For this purpose, we present multiple scatterers able to depolarize the incident wave to create a response in the orthogonal polarization. Measurements in anechoic chamber and in a real environment, when the tags are positioned(More)
A study on a low-cost wireless fully inkjet-printed chipless sensor on a flexible laminate with three different inks is presented. It is based on two split ring resonator 90° oriented between each other to allow for independent responses on two polarizations. A deposit of a polymer/single walled carbon nanotube composite ink is used to allow for the(More)
The paper presents the design and development of a low cost chipless RFID system for secure near field data transfer. This system is ideal for use in credit cards and similar identification cards which are based on "data transfer by contact" which at present uses the conventional using integrated circuits (IC) or magnetic strips. The system(More)
This paper presents a fully inkjet printed wireless chipless sensor for carbon dioxide detection. It is composed of two split ring resonators 90 degrees rotated to each other for a total size of 18x46 mm2. The first resonator is used for gas detection whereas the second provides identification of sensor, and a reference for accurate detection. The(More)
This paper presents a chipless radio frequency identification (RFID) sensor tag having both identification and sensing capabilities. It is based on one resonant scatterer operating as a signal processing antenna in the 3-7.5 GHz band. The scatterer is used to monitor a physical parameter variation, as well as to identify the remote sensor. To make a(More)
This paper studies a novel RFID-enabled strain sensing approach using the radar cross-section measurement technique and taking advantage of the nonlinearity properties of the RFID chip. As a proof of concept, we applied the method for the measurement of an RFID-enabled strain sensor that was realized on fabric using electro-textiles in order to observe(More)
A wireless chipless sensor for structural deformation monitoring is proposed. The sensor is based on two resonant scatterers sewn on stretchable fabrics with conductive threads. The combination of the two scatterers allows for the detection of the strain in a 2-dimensional plane. The backscattered response, as a function of frequency, is detected with the(More)
