In this paper the use of RFID for EM field measurement is studied. A novel RFID antenna with high tuning capabilities is presented and measured, and it is used in combination with several RFID IC to measure the EM field along the H-plane of a horn antenna. A calibration procedure for the non-linear effects in RFID IC is introduced and used to correct the measured fields.
