Polydimethylsiloxane Substrates for passive UHFRFID Sensors

Rumens, C.V. and Rakibet, Osman Özgür and Batchelor, John C. and Holder, Simon J. (2014) Polydimethylsiloxane Substrates for passive UHFRFID Sensors. In: 2014 Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference (LAPC 2014). IEEE, pp. 562-563. ISBN 978-1-4799-3661-8. (KAR id:46005)


PDMS has previously shown to be a suitable substrate for UHF-RFID strain sensor tags due to their elastomer characteristics. However, PDMS has further properties such as polymer swelling which could be utilized in gas sensing. Macroporous PDMS sponges have been proposed as suitable substrates for passive gas sensors. Porous sponges were fabricated using sugar templates and their absorption capacity was investigated along with standard PDMS elastomers. Possible applications could include food package and air quality monitoring.
