A novel dielectric sensing method that utilizes the highly selective frequency response of a wire-loaded waveguide structure is proposed. The sensing scheme consists of two interconnected waveguides that are coupled through a narrow aperture containing metallic wires. The dielectric sensing is accomplished by detecting the shift in the resonant frequency when the dielectric samples are placed at high intensity field locations around the wires. The effect of various waveguide parameters on the… CONTINUE READING
