Hey everyone, Looking for someone in the know regarding RFID reader antenna design. Part of a project I'm working on requires a custom RFID transmitter antenna. If possible, I'd like to design the antenna as an integral part of a steel cylinder. I know there are on-metal tags, but is it possible to design an on-metal reader antenna? Please see the very rough diagram I've attached - the red represents the antenna location. It would basically need to be mounted on the face of the steel cylinder with some sort of epoxy. Read range requirements are very low, less than 1cm. The antenna would likely need to be 10-12 inches long.
