Abstract

This project aims to provide students and researchers with low cost, low power, lightweight probes for characterizing natural phenomena. To achieve this, the probes are designed using the modulated scattering technique, which in this application provides a system somewhat analogous to a hybrid radar and RFID system. The achieved design is one square inch in area, less than 10 grams, and easily has a battery life of over 20 days using two CR2032 batteries in series.
