This paper proposes for the first time, a group delay based humidity sensor for chipless RFID applications. The sensor network consists of cascaded group of microstrip transmission line sections coupled at alternative ends. Silicon nanowires are deposited on the transmission line sections. The nanowires are extremely sensitive to humidity variations, which make it a good candidate for sensor applications. The sensor shows a very good sensitivity to humidity in phase and group delay at a… CONTINUE READING
