Abstract
A circularly polarized dual band wearable antenna using frequency selective surface backed reflector for radio frequency identification reader resonating at global ultra-high frequency band (860-960 MHz) & ISM band (2.4 GHz) is proposed in this work. For circular polarization, the corner is truncated at the opposite end of a square patch with periodic slots over the patch for getting an orthogonal electric field in both the X & Y axis direction. Another truncated inner square slot patch miniaturizes the antenna further for stable frequency response. Finally, the periodic frequency selective surface-based reflector is used for gain enhancement & crosstalk reduction. The simulated & measured results for antenna over human body are plotted against the required bandwidth. The return loss and maximum radiated gains of -31 dB and 8.30 dB are achieved at a resonating frequency of 2.4 GHz with the reading range and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of 6.98 m and 0.77 watt/kg respectively. At 865 MHz the return loss & maximum radiated gain is -23 dB & 5.31 dB with the reading range & SAR of 5.21 m & 0.65 watt/kg respectively. The proposed UHF RFID antenna is circularly polarized with the axial ratio bandwidth less than 3 dB with approximately 15% (860-965 MHz & 2.4-2.45 GHz) range. The designed wearable antenna provides better isolation when FSS is incorporated while enhancing the gain for longer read range. The FSS reflector below the antenna reduces the SAR for on-body wearable applications. This RFID antenna can be used efficiently for WBAN applications as a portable RFID reader wearable antenna for remote sensing & real time monitoring.
