Possibilities of Fabricating Copper-Based RFID Tags With Photonic-Sintered Inkjet Printing and Thermal Transfer Printing

This letter studies the possibilities of manufacturing copper-based passive ultrahigh frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) tags using inkjet and thermal printing on two substrate materials, polyimide (Kapton), and a polyester-based substrate (Flexcon THERMLfilm). Both printing methods are tested to fabricate different tag designs, and the… (More)
