Design of Radio Frequency Identification tags based upon Graphene interconnections

Long checkout lines at the grocery stores and wholesales are one of the biggest complaints about the shopping experience. Soon these lines could disappear when te ubiquitous universal product code barcode is replaced by smart labels, also called radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. RFID tags are intelligent barcodes that can talk to a networked system to track every product that you put in your shopping cart. In this project, Graphene, the wonder material of the century, will be integrated into RFID devices to increase its reliability and reduce its product cost.
