Dr. Margaret Joyce, professor of paper engineering at Western Michigan University (WMU) in Kalamazoo, Wis., is among those at the forefront of intelligent printing. In September, Joyce was awarded a grant of close to $1 million to study printed radio frequency identification (RFID) tags with an eye on their use for homeland security. In her research, Joyce will evaluate the effectiveness of both flexographic and gravure printing methods for this application and will seek to better understand and identify the various ink, substrate, and press materials needed to optimize performance of printed RFID tag technology.
