Experimental Study of Metal-to-Metal Contact Shapes Effects on Passive Intermodulation
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 66, 143-150, 2018
Abstract
This paper describes an experimental study of passive intermodulation due to metal-tometal contacts with focus on shape influence. This study investigates PIM value of different contact geometric profiles and different contact areas versus normal forces. A complete description of profiles used is done to achieve a relationship between PIM level and contact shape.
