This is the big umbrella that includes different aspects of our research, from developing low-cost conformal sensors to designing communication systems.
RF/microwave sensing holds tremendous potential to meet the demand for continuous monitoring because of its low cost, high sensitivity, and potential for non-invasive and wireless sensing. Planar resonator-based structures have recently been used extensively for microwave sensing due to the compact design and highly accurate detection with very small amounts of the sample under test. These features make resonator-based sensors an ideal candidate for real-time noncontact detection and monitoring systems.
The limitation of electronic readout circuitry in harsh environment sensing, low-sensitivity and selectivity, and distance limited sensing performance are the important challenges that limits the RF/microwave sensors successful implementation into a wireless sensing system in the rapid evolving field of IoT. We introduce “chipless” sensing tag to address this issue! This concept has enable different applications, from Bitumen monitoring at 200C to Hazardous gas concentration monitoring.
