Measurement of Nonplanar Dielectric Samples Using an Open Resonator

Chan, W.F.P. and Chambers, B. (1987) Measurement of Nonplanar Dielectric Samples Using an Open Resonator. IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, 35 (12). pp. 1429-1434. ISSN 0018-9480

Conventional microwave methods for measuring permittivity often utilize samples in flat sheet form. In practice, however, it is sometimes desirable to measure samples having curved surfaces, for example, parts of lenses or small radomes. This paper describes an open resonator technique for achieving this and compares measurements made at 11.6 GHz on samples of polymethyl methacryIate in both curved and flat sheet form.
