Microwave Dielectric Ceramics and Devices for Wireless Technologies


Article Preview

In this paper, several kinds of synthesis techniques were adopted; not only conventional solidstate reaction method but also solution synthesis techniques, including co-precipitation and hydrothermal synthesis, in addition to the gel-casting for complex shape of ceramic components and tape-casting of large scale thin plate for microwave IC. Different kinds of microwave ceramics were prepared, such as materials with low permittivity and high quality factor, moderate permittivity and good quality factor, and, high permittivity and reasonable quality factor, in addition to near zero of temperature coefficient of resonance frequency. Series of microwave devices were developed, for examples, dielectric resonators, dielectric filters, GPS antennas, communication connectors, and thin substrates for microwave IC.
