Simple procedure for robust and accurate complex permittivity measurements of low-loss materials over a broad frequency band
In this research paper, we propose a simple procedure for accurate, stable and broadband measurements of complex permittivity of low-loss dielectric samples with considerable lengths. We identify and demonstrate by numerical and analytical analyses the main ill-behaved factor that gives rise to inaccurate peaks for measurements of electrical properties of low-loss samples in the well-known Nicolson-Ross-Weir method. Without using this factor in the expressions and combining better features of the methods available in the literature, the proposed procedure allows highly accurate permittivity measurements over a broad band. We have validated the proposed method by permittivity measurements of a low-loss sample by different methods. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

Two-step numerical procedure for complex permittivity retrieval of dielectric materials from reflection measurements A two-step measurement procedure has been proposed for measurement of complex permittivity of dielectric materials using one-port reflection measurements. In the procedure, as a first step, a graphical method is applied ...
Calibration-independent nonresonant measurements can be employed to eliminate the need for calibration before microwave measurements. These methods generally assume that the location of the sample in its measurement cell ...
Attractive method for thickness-independent permittivity measurements of solid dielectric materials We propose a non-resonant-type method for reference-plane invariant and thickness-independent permittivity measurement of solid dielectric materials when there is no information from permittivity. To achieve this, we derive ...
