Microwave engineering firm reaches first milestone
in developing new broadband dielectric materials characterization technologies.
Apalachin, NY, April 27th – Microwave engineers at RCL Microwave, Inc. in Apalachin, NY have executed their first successful
test and dielectric measurement of
a thin, flexible 200 micron thick glass material using novel measurement fixtures and methods
capable of broadband dielectric material characterization.
The test was performed and successfully completed using unique broadband measurement fixtures
and the phase difference method, which provides 10,000 data points from 1 MHz to 32 GHz. A
32 GHz broadband test fixture has been combined with the Phase Difference Dielectric Characterization
Method to generate data across the entire frequency spectrum of interest. This eliminates
the need to interpolate dielectric constants based on a small number of data points. These
fixtures also allow the loss tangents of materials to be determined. The Phase Difference
Dielectric Characterization Method combined with 32 GHz broadband measurement fixtures allows
for precise characterization of materials ranging from approximately 100 microns (~0.004")
to 1,000 microns (~0.030") in thickness for a wide range of dielectric constants and loss
