Improvement of HF RFID Tag Detection With a Distributed Diameter Reader Coil

Abstract : This letter focuses on 13.56 MHz high-frequency radio frequency identification (RFID) in the case of small tags detection, with an effective area below 1 cm(2). In such an identification system, based on load modulation principle, the magnetic coupling coefficient k and quality factor of the RFID reader coil are the key parameters. The main goal of this letter is to improve the detection of small tags over a given surface of 10 x 10 cm(2) by modifying the reader coil structure, and consequently the coupling coefficient k. Several coil designs are compared experimentally by distributing the diameters of their turns among three possible values. The design of the coils is based on empirical formulas that are in good agreement with experimental measurements. Electromagnetic simulations are performed to confirm the magnetic field distribution of the different designs. The results show that distributed diameter coil (DDC) as RFID reader coil is clearly efficient in this context of the RFID detection. The DDC structures determine the k factor, and, as k is low, the quality factor Q is a second parameter that can improve, in a second step, the RFID detection performances in function of the tag position and orientation.
