A Technique for Permittivity Measurement of Ceramic Powders at Microwave Frequencies


Article Preview

Details of a new technique for the permittivity measurement of ceramic powders at microwave frequencies are described. Permittivity of a powder is calculated from the permittivity of liquid medium and that of the slurry made from the liquid medium and the powder. Measured permittivities of BaNd2Ti4O12 ceramic powders vary by processing conditions of the powders. This result is consistent with permittivities of composite substrates made from these powders and a thermosetting resin.
