EpsiMu, A toolkit for permittivity and permeability measurement in microwave domain at real time of all materials: Applications to solid and semisolid materials

Abstract : n this article, we present a very simple toolkit for permittivity and permeability measurement in the microwave region in real time. This kit contains a coaxial cell and a dedicated software compatible with any Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) for the reconstruction of permittivity and permeability data. The customizing design of the coaxial cell depends on the applications and material forms. The dedicated software for overall cells reconstructs directly in real time the permittivity and the permeability from the S-parameters measured. The Nicolson & Ross-Weir algorithm is using after a de-embedding process done by modeling our cell with an identity card (IC). The novelty of our method is that, after calibration process of the VNA to remove the cable effect, the measurement of the permittivity and permeability were done directly after only one measurement in real time. To validate the accuracy of this new measurement process for new applications, we reconstruct the permittivity of two material forms (dielectric or/and magnetic solids, semisolid). This new toolkit is called EpsiMu (www.epsimu.fr).
