In this letter, we present a graphical method based on Green's analysis of scattering antennas to optimize the load impedances for achieving maximum modulated radar cross-section (RCS) of backscattering radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags. A planar tag antenna specifically designed for working in the ultra-high-frequency band is used to experimentally validate the method. The measured RCS of the loaded tag antenna shows acceptable agreement with the theory and simulated results. This method is especially valuable to the design of semipassive RFID tags when the communication range is solely determined by the backscattering modulation efficiency of tags.
