Someone who saw my RFID model blog post from a few days back pointed me towards a site that talks just about RFIDs. On it, I discovered a lot of articles about using RFID in the biomedical industry. This was an application that I had never thought of before. I’d always associated RFIDs with security, tracking packages and the like.

Reading physorg.com, I came across this story about miniaturizing antennas for smaller wireless devices. Apparently, the size of the antenna often limits the size of the wireless device – so let’s make those antennas smaller. The article is about a group from the University of Michigan who achieves this by using a hemispherical substrate with a spiraling antenna taking advantage of the volume that the hemisphere provides.
