Short summary
In this work, silver and gold nanoparticle inks were printed by a consumer inkjet printer on eco-friendly substrates like paper and PET in order to make the RFID tag manufacturing process less harmful to the ecosystem. A dipole antenna was designed and based on this design, simulations of the greener tags are presented and compared as a proof of concept for the different materials. First measurements are conducted and simulations with the optimized antenna designs are shown.
