Low Frequency Dielectric Measurements - Instrument Development and Material Characterization
Workplace:Zurich, SwitzerlandCompany/name:IT'IS Foundation for Research on Information Technologies in Society,
Reliable dielectric data are required in many scientific and industrial fields. For example, substrate materials for electronic circuits must be characterized for optimal performance, mobile telecommunication relies on novel antenna designs, the hybrid drive systems of automobiles demand robust batteries and capacitors. In medicine, the various human tissues and the parts of possible implants must be measured to optimize medical devices by electromagnetic simulations. These numerical simulations are based on precise input data. The currently available instruments for measurement of dielectric properties of different materials are often cumbersome to operate and generate imprecise dielectric data. Our group has successfully developed a measurement technique based on open coaxial probes to cover the 10 MHz – 67 GHz frequency range.
The goal of the Master thesis is to perform a feasibility study for the frequency range below 10 MHz suited for solids, liquids, and electrolytes. The tasks include a literature study, development of prototypes and algorithms, the evaluations, and suggestions for the development of a final product.
