Naik,“A new capacitive test structure for microwave characterization of biopolymers”, Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, vol. 49, no.6, pp. 1261-65, 2007., which has been published in final form at http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/mop.22474.
A new capacitive test structure, containing a parallel plate capacitor with coplanar waveguide feed lines, was used for microwave characterization of biopolymers for the first time. Microwave dielectric properties were obtained for the biopolymers as a function of dc bias and temperature by performing on-wafer microwave measurements. Dielectric tunability was observed with applied dc bias in the biopolymers tested.
