Special Issue "Chipless RFID Technologies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018)
The scientific research and industrial applications dealing with Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) have been growing at a fast pace in the last few years. A new technological paradigm has been recently proposed to realize RF labels and sensors: The chipless RFID. This novel solution does not rely on any Integrated Circuit for storing the information or monitoring a physical parameter but exploits encoding mechanisms and sensing features based on a suitably tailored frequency or time domain fingerprint. Although many solutions have been proposed, several challenges require further scientific efforts and technological improvements at any level of the system.
This Special Issue is intended to report the recent advances in new chipless RFID tag solutions and innovative sensors, chipless reader, robust and reliable tag/sensor reading processes, algorithms for improving the system performance.
Articles in this Special Issue will address topics that include: Novel chipless RFID tags and sensors realized with ink-jet printing, additive manufacturing and dielectric resonators; chipless sensors for extreme environments; security and anticounterfeiting applications, algorithms and procedures for calibration and reliable reading.Dr. Simone Genovesi

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
