Fabry-Perot resonator for permittivity measurement 25 GHz-330 GHz

Order at Keysight Technologies

Remarkably easy and repeatable measurements even at 330 GHz

  • Ideal for evaluation of low-loss dielectric materials with tan δ of 0.01 or less
  • Automatic measurement in about 5 minutes to obtain the frequency characteristics in the frequency band
  • Easy installation: Normal laboratory environment is sufficient

The Fabry-Perot resonator method is ideal for evaluating low-loss dielectric materials at high frequencies up to 330 GHz, which cannot be covered by split-cylinder resonators. Traditionally, the Fabry-Perot resonator has been considered a specialized instrument for a few specialists, but EM Labs has developed a solution that defies conventional wisdom by focusing on ease of use and repeatability in real-world applications. Even at the high frequency of 330 GHz, highly reproducible measurement results can be obtained regardless of operator skill or installation environment.
