Printed electronics for body-worn RFID sensor

Zhou, Runhui (2023) Printed electronics for body-worn RFID sensor. Master of Science by Research (MScRes) thesis, University of Kent,. (doi:10.22024/UniKent/01.02.102887) (KAR id:102887)


This thesis is concerned with a body-worn RFID sensor fabrication using an inkjet printer. The research aims to explore designing a user-friendly body-worn RFID Sensor, and the development of a simpler fabrication method. This thesis will explain why chosen conductors printing onto Tattoo paper would not be

possible in this research. And how to resulted as they were not able to survive more than 3 hours on human skin and the flexibility and stretchiness of the paper damaged the circuit. This will relate to the reason why mounting the printed circuits to the tattoo paper is a delicate procedure. Tegaderm Film is chosen due to it is thicker than Tattoo paper, and with different characteristics. So, this thesis also will introduce the methods, benefits, and differences

between printing electronics on tattoo paper and Tegaderm film. Body-worn RFID sensors using Tegaderm film also will be introduced.
