Abstract

This paper presents new techniques for characterizing dielectric, ferromagnetic, as well as conductor materials in the radio and microwave frequency regions. For characterizing dielectric materials, two sample configurations are used: the terminating cylindrical cavity and the through cylindrical cavity configurations. To characterize ferromagnetic materials, a coaxial cavity terminating a precision air line is used. The conductivity of conductor materials is measured by terminating a precision air line with a plate of the conductor material under test. The measured scattering parameters are used to derive the materials properties.
