Comparison of two post-calibration correction methods for complex permittivity measurement of biological tissues up to 50 GHz
A new technique using the multi-port annular slot antenna for the measurement of complex permittivity is developed. The benefit of this new technique is that a two port network can be used on a planar device. The forward case of measuring S21 is combined with a simple but effective calibration technique to compensate for the feed network. The validity of the method is confirmed by using methanol and ethanol, which are commonly used reference materials, for comparison between expected and measured results.
