A new method for the calibration of a multiport microwave tomography (MWT) system measured with a 2-port vector network analyzer (VNA) is presented. The two VNA ports are mapped to the eight input ports of the MWT system by means of a switching network. This contribution deals with the calibration of the switching matrix. In consideration of the application, the proposed approach reduces the mechanical complexity of the calibration procedure significantly, by eliminating transmission… CONTINUE READING
