Design and Fabrication of Wideband Archimedean Spiral Antenna Based Ultra-Low Cost ``Green'' Modules for RFID Sensing and Wireless Applications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 130, 241-256, 2012
Abstract
A parametric analysis is performed for a wideband Archimedean spiral antenna in recognition of an emerging concept to integrate RFID along with several applications by using a single antenna. The antenna is fabricated using state-of-the-art inkjet printing technology on various commercially available paper substrates to provide the low-cost, flexible RF modules for the next generation of "green" electronics. The effects on electromagnetic characteristics of the planar Archimedean spiral antenna, due to the use of paper are investigated besides other parameters. The proposed antenna is evaluated and optimized for operational range from 0.8-3.0 GHz. It exhibits exceptional coverage throughout numerous RFID ISM bands so do for other wireless applications.
