A reliable encoding/detection scheme for chipless radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, free from any normalization procedure, is presented. The key strategy of the present approach consists in storing the information in the difference between vertically and horizontally polarized reflection coefficients of a completely passive tag. The measured reflection coefficients are preemptively filtered in the time domain to remove most of harmful effects due to the antenna coupling and environment multipath, and finally they are subtracted to obtain the differential response. A couple of chipless tag configurations suitable for providing the desired spectral response are presented. The resonators consist of an artificial impedance surface comprising either concentric rectangular loop resonators or square loop resonators loaded with stubs. The presented approach is experimentally verified in a non-anechoic environment, and its robustness is proved. This calibration-free approach could pave the way to practical applicability of chipless RFID tags in realistic scenarios with unknown response.

Abstract

A reliable encoding/detection scheme for chipless radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, free from any normalization procedure, is presented. The key strategy of the present approach consists in storing the information in the difference between vertically and horizontally polarized reflection coefficients of a completely passive tag. The measured reflection coefficients are preemptively filtered in the time domain to remove most of harmful effects due to the antenna coupling and environment multipath, and finally they are subtracted to obtain the differential response. A couple of chipless tag configurations suitable for providing the desired spectral response are presented. The resonators consist of an artificial impedance surface comprising either concentric rectangular loop resonators or square loop resonators loaded with stubs. The presented approach is experimentally verified in a non-anechoic environment, and its robustness is proved. This calibration-free approach could pave the way to practical applicability of chipless RFID tags in realistic scenarios with unknown response.
