Procedures are described for microwave permittivity measurements taken on 23 kinds of common fresh fruits and vegetables with an open-ended coaxial-line probe used in conjunction with a microwave network analyzer. Plots of the dielectric constant and loss factor at 41 frequencies between 200 MHz and 20 GHz are illustrated for apple, lemon, carrot, cucumber, and avocado, and condensed data for all, along with moisture content, tissue density, and total soluble solids, are tabulated at six… CONTINUE READING
