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
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 tangents.
