Abstract

3D-printing technology promises high added value in many scientific contexts, including that of new materials for electromagnetics. The joint use with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is very appealing for designing new RFID-based smart devices while maintaining cost-effectiveness. In this work a T-Resonator structure for the dielectric characterization of substrates, including 3D-printed ones, is firstly presented. Both permittivity and loss tangent of PLA substrates have been measured in the UHF RFID band when varying the air percentage in the printed material. On the basis on the characterized substrates, a wearable bracelet tag and a Yagi-Uda-inspired long-range tag, which exploit the peculiarities of 3D-printing, have been designed, realized, and validated. © 2017 Univeristy of Split, FESB.
