Abstract:
Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) is measured as reflector material for millimeter waves at 60 GHz. Reflectivity is measured to characterize material anisotropy in a mono-static setup. Disc shaped material samples are rotated in steps of one degree. Four commonly employed CFRP are investigated: unidirectional fibers, plain-weave, twill-weave and fiber shreds. Results show that the unidirectional CFRP and twill-weave CFRP are anisotropic, while the remaining materials are isotropic within measurement accuracy.
