A completely passive Radio Frequency Tag is proposed, utilizing the scattering from electrically small but resonant inclusions. When placing these space-filling curve inclusions in an array and scaling each element within the array such that each element has its own separate resonant frequency, a radio frequency barcode can be developed from the Radar Cross Section of the array. The narrow bandwidth inherent to such inclusions can be helpful in packing the overall signature into a relatively small frequency spectrum. Such Radio Frequency Tags may have potential use in some applications of Radio Frequency Identification Systems.
