Two-step numerical procedure for complex permittivity retrieval of dielectric materials from reflection measurements
MetadataShow full item record
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 to analyze on the complex reflection-coefficient plane the general pattern of dielectric behavior of the sample. Then, as a second step, optimization algorithms are utilized for retrieving electrical properties of samples. The procedure requires measurement of complex reflection scattering parameters of at least two samples with different lengths. It has been validated by X-band measurements of three polyvinyl chloride samples with lengths 5, 10, and 20 mm. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

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 ...
