Curved Dual - Band Dielectric Resonator Tag Antenna for RFID Applications
In this paper, the authors present a new application of dielectric resonator antenna in radio frequency identification system. A curved dual-band dielectric resonator antenna for RFID applications is proposed. The tag antenna is designed to operate at 2.45GHz (2.25-2.55GHz) and 5.8GHz (5.65-5.95GHz) bands. The radiation characteristics of the tag antenna in free space are investigated. The radar cross sections under different loads are obtained. The effect of curvature on the tag antenna performance is explained. Two examples are considered. In the first example, the tag antenna is mounted on cylindrical bottle filled with the polyethylene material.
