Broadband Microwave Dielectric Properties of Polymers

  • W. M. Robertson (a1), Y. Pastol (a1), G. Arjavalingam (a1), J.-M. Halbout (a1) and G. V. Kopcsay (a1)...

The recently developed coherent microwave transient spectroscopy (COMITS) technique is capable of determining the complex dielectric properties of materials over a broad frequency range (15–140 GHz), in a single experiment. COMITS is based on the radiation and detection of picosecond duration electromagnetic transients by optoelectronically pulsed antennas. The essential features of the COMITS technique are described and representative results on dielectric and conducting polymers are presented.
