Design of a Microstrip-Line-Fed Inset Patch Antenna for RFID Applications

Nazish Irfan, Mustapha C. E. Yagoub, and Khelifa Hettak

Abstract—Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems, due to recent technological advances, have been used for various advantages in industries like production facilities, supply chain management etc. Since used in wide range of applications, RFID systems demand low cost and low profile antennas. Microstrip patch antenna offers a potential solution and therefore is a popular printed resonant antenna for narrow-band applications. In this paper, a 2.42 GHz inset fed patch antenna has been designed for RFID applications with a gain of 4.6772dB and a return loss of -21.0579 dB.

Index Terms—RFID, antenna, reader, inset fed, gain.
