Étienne Perret was not able to receive his IMT Espoir award from the French Academy of Sciences under the hallowed dome of the historic Institut de France building. The December 1 award ceremony had to be held remotely due to the ongoing pandemic. This award is not the first one that LCIS* researcher Perret has won for is work on chipless RFID.
Currently, Perret and his team are putting the finishing touches on a technique for producing tags with geometric patterns printed on them with a conductive ink that serves as a resonator. The ID and traceability labels, which are more powerful than barcodes, will also be more affordable than conventional chip-based RFID tags. Although the Covid-19 lockdowns did create some delays on the project, Perret and his team should be ready to unveil their demonstrator in the second half of 2021.
