Rapid developments of radiofrequency technologies have brought about a big leap in the advancement of tag antenna design. As a key part of the radio-frequency identification (RFID) system, tag antenna has received much attention because it can affect the system performance significantly. Since a tag is usually attached to an object, its antenna size must be made compact enough. Modern UHF RFID tag antennas are required to be compact and usable in complex environment. Designing a tag antenna involves tradeoffs between impedance matching, antenna gain, and circuit size. So, optimization is always a must. The aim of this project is to design and optimize far-field RFID tag antennas using different types of microwave resonators for some specific applications.
