Abstract

A functionalised variant of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) was applicated atop an RFMicron RFM2100-AER UHF RFID tag and used in a series of depositions of pH buffer solutions, to observe changes in a sensor code generated by the tag. Averaged values of the sensor code data were used between 800-860MHz from 8-20dBm to compare pH buffers between 8.8 and 7.2 which consistently showed a significant degree of change in averaged sensor intensity readout. pH buffers outside the effective buffering range did not show a significant difference in averaged sensor code intensity.
