Abstract [en]

Antennas in RFID tags have often been designed in a single layer with copper as conductor and plastic foils as substrate. There is currently a large interest in roll to roll production of RFID tags and silver based inks have been developed for use in printed RFID antennas. Silver ink based single layer antennas works well and is providing 70% to 80% of the reading range compared to copper solutions. However, more advanced antennas are needed to provide less sensitivity to the environment of RFID tags .i.e. need for placing tags on metal or near water. In this work we present a study of multilayered antennas so called patch antennas, for 2.45 GHz RFID tags. The advantage of the patch antenna is that it can be applied to any kind of material, reflecting or lossy material, and still provide good antenna function. However, the patch antenna efficiency is strongly dependent on the material used. For low cost RFID tags in logistics there is a need to manufacture the antenna as a part of the packaging process. In the current work we have investigated the possibility to manufacture printed patch antennas of common packaging materials.

Abstract [en]

Remotely read electronic identification tags are establishing as the standard method of identifying objects in transport logistcs. They are referred to as RFID tags and with successful research and development they are likely to one day replace all of todays barcodes, found on a wide variety of items and objects. As RFID systems consist of many different parts spanning over just as many academic subjects, this thesis investigates some of the main issues regarding RFID tag antennas. Large focus is put on performance and cost optimization of relatively simple one‐layer antennas, suitable for mass production in commercial printing presses using electrically conductive ink. Examples of specially designed antennas include ones that can operate upon metallic objects and antennas that can be physicall bent. It is also shown how RFID tag antennas that will be widely exposed to the human eye can include a commercial value by letting heir geometric design originate from group insignias and company logos. The thesis also presents a solution of how pairs of ordinary low cost RFID tags can be used as remotely read moisture sensors.
