An Advanced Electrical Properties Measurement Approach with a Designed BI-Static Ultra-Wideband Impulse Radar Sensor

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 75, 167-178, 2018
Abstract
This paper reports on the development of a compact, low-cost, impulse bi-static UWB radar sensor for its use as non-destructive methods for electrical property measurement in industrial application. This UWB Radar sensor consists of an ultrashort-monocycle-pulse transmitter of 330 ps, an oscilloscope as a UWB sampling receiver with a high wide band of 6 GHz, and two UWB antennas ranging from 0.4 to 6 GHz. A new model of SRD has been introduced in order to decrease the rise time of the impulse. Performance of this UWB radar sensor was veri ed through two kinds of applications: range detection and electrical property measurements. All measurements have been carried out in an anechoic chamber with a distance variation between 80 and 300 cm. The full radar system provides good agreement between the experimental and theoretical results, which demonstrate its application in many fields, especially for electrical Property Measurements.
