Open Resonator Technique of Non-Planar Dielectric Objects at Millimeter Wavelengths
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 9, 185-197, 2009
Abstract
This paper provides a reliable dielectric measurement theory of the open resonator for non-planar objects such as convex-concave objects. It is the first time that the complete analytical formulas of the complex permittivity are presented by means of the second-order theory of the open resonator and field matching method. Furthermore, a measurement system is designed and built at Ka band, and the consistency of the results between planar and non-planar samples verifies the accuracy of the new theory. Finally, the experimental error analysis is investigated.
