An Inverted L Antenna with a Parasitic Structure for RFID Tag

Full Text PDF


An inverted L antenna altered by a parasitic resonant structure is designed for RFID tag. In order to determine the performance of varying design parameters on impedance and resonance frequency, HFSS simulation software and experimental tests are carried out. This way, the focus of this work is RFID tag antenna design based on the structure above mentioned.
