Optically Transparent Flexible Robust Circularly Polarized Antenna for UHF RFID Tags

Abstract

Optically transparent flexible tag antennas are highly desired for some applications, where unobtrusiveness and capability of mounting on curved surfaces are required. On the other hand, circular polarization minimizes signal degradation due to polarization mismatch between the reader and tag antennas, thus ensuring good communication quality and accuracy. In this paper, we present an optically transparent and flexible radio frequency identification (RFID) passive tag antenna operating in the ultra-high frequency (UHF) band and exhibits circular polarization. It is thin, lightweight and completely encapsulated inside transparent polymer which protects it against dust, water, heat and mechanical stress. The tag antenna is made by utilizing highly flexible and transparent conductive-mesh-polymer composite through a simple and low-cost manufacturing process. The antenna design is based on a planar square-ring. It achieves a measured maximum read range of about 8.3 m and approximately 47 MHz (885-932 MHz) 3-dB axial-ratio bandwidth.
