Dielectric Permittivity and Permeability Measurement Service

Send us your sample and our expert team will get the measurement results you need, quickly and easily.

We provide dielectric constant and magnetic permeability measurement service up to 330 GHz on a variety of samples including plates, films, liquids, and powders. Our turnaround time for results is typically 2 weeks from receipt of sample.

In the test laboratory

Fixtures: All of the resonator methods (Cavity Resonator, Split Cylinder, and Fabry Perot) as well as S-parameter methods (Waveguide Sample Holder and Free Space) are available for professional measurement service.
In addition to dielectric constant and magnetic permeability, reflection and transmission characteristics are available on the S-parameter method.

Why Measurement Service?

Building your own test setup needs time, people, effort, and big initial investment.

  • VNA
  • Fixtures
  • Sample preparation
  • Operator training
  • Process control
Once you start measuring your materials frequently, it’s worth it. However, for a one-time measurement (or evaluation stage of your own test setup), it would make sense to ask a professional service to characterize your material. We strongly believe the professional measurement service is one of the most important contributions for our customers and the industry to move forward their business as quickly as possible. With trusted test instruments and knowledge, we’re committed to provide meaningful and accurate data. Contact us for free consultation (no obligation) to discuss your test needs!

Temperature dependency measurement service

Temperature dependency of dielectric constant is getting more and more important with growth of the application area of mmW devices.

We have a measurement service using a temp chamber (range: -50degC to 150degC) with a variety of split cylinders (freq range: 10GHz to 80GHz).

Temp & Humidity dependency measurement service

We have customized split cylinders for humidity tests for specific frequencies (10, 28, 40GHz) for range of temperature and humidity.

With a combination of temp dependency of dried condition, comprehensive understanding of the temperature and humidity dependency of material under the test. In the test example, samples of MPI (Modified Polyimide) and LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) are evaluated. First temp characteristics (-50degC to 150degC) for dried condition is characterized, then temp & humidity test added for range of condition. Difference of the behavior is clearly seen between these two materials.
