The following subject will be introduced:
Measurements of in-plane permittivity with split-post dielectric resonators (SPDR) in the 1-15 GHz range. The theory of operation of SPDRs and their practical use will be addressed with the emphasis on the advantages and limitations of the method.
Measurements of in-plane permittivity with a Fabry-Perot open resonator (FPOR) in the 20-110 GHz range. Special attention will be focused on a new electromagnetic model of the resonator based on a conformal transformation technique.
Measurements of out-of-plane permittivity with a cylindrical resonator in the microwave range. It is of essential importance in the design of microwave circuits.
Measurements of the soil moisture in a cylindrical resonator. The particular application of the permittivity measurements in the extraction of the soil moisture will be discussed.
Measurements of a ferromagnetic linewidth of ferromagnetic materials in the microwave range. A new accurate approach based on mode splitting will be addressed.
