    Abstract

    The zero power sensor network represents a platform that enables fully passive wireless sensing based on the third order intermodulation principle. This work describes the development and evaluation of a zero power reader device. Results from the initial characterization are presented for the evaluation of the reader's performance in sensor readout at a distance of 5 m. The limitations affecting the readout range are investigated and highlighted to be based on the reader's self-intermodulation.
