This paper discusses novel techniques to overcome problems arising when porting the surface acoustic wave approach of building passive radio-frequency identification and measurement systems to the electromagnetic domain without the need of mechanical (acoustical) delay lines. These techniques include the utilization of left-handed artificial delay lines and the increase of information density by using a higher order modulation scheme. The benefit from the porting is a broader field of applications, e. g. RFID tags working at very high temperatures or in other harsh environments become possible.
