1) ZI C represents the impedance of the IC and ZANT represents the impedance of the antenna ∗ with ZANT being its conjugate. The simulated radiation pattern and radiation efficiency were numerically computed in HFSS by introducing an RLC boundary along with the port impedance that simulates the behavior of the IC (with its complex impedance feed). In Fig. 5 the 2-D radiation plot is shown for the phi=0◦ and phi=90◦ where an omnidirectional pattern is realized. The radiation pattern throughout the bandwidth of the antenna has also shown to have an omnidirectional pattern similar to that of a classic (λ/2) dipole antenna.

3: Measured return loss of the RFID tag antenna on the magnetic material with the comparison of the one on the silicone substrate. In measurement, a GS 1000 μm pitch probe was used for impedance measurements. 06 resembling that of the free space. The calibration method used was short-open-load-thru (SOLT). The initial structure was designed for the lower end of the UHF spectrum and was modeled using Zeland IE3D full wave EM software. 3 mm thickness. Then the same dimensions of the antenna were maintained for the magnetic composite material.

The next step was the actual fabrication of the material and the measurement of the electrical and magnetic characteristics, including loss. Finally, the miniaturized antenna was fabricated on the 50 CHAPTER 4. CONFORMAL MAGNETIC COMPOSITE RFID TAGS magnetic composite and its performance was measured, compared and validated along with the simulated predictions. The presented magnetic substrate is the first flexible magnetic composite tested and proven for the 480 MHz bandwidth with acceptable magnetic losses, which makes it usable for lightweight conformal/wearable applications like pharmaceutical industry and wireless health monitoring in hospital, ambulance and home-based patient care.
