Dielectric measurement of logs for improved internal imaging

  title={Dielectric measurement of logs for improved internal imaging},

This paper describes the measurement of the dielectric properties of the typical log features of Heartwood, Sapwood and internal Branches. Measurements were made using the waveguide cell technique covering the frequency range of 2.3 to 6.5GHz. This has shown that for the desired contrast between heartwood and Sapwood to be achieved the imaging system must operate above 4GHz. Additional work was undertaken to establish a method to correct these measurements for variations in basic density and… CONTINUE READING
