A new capacitive test structure for microwave characterization of biopolymers
Microwave and Optical Technology Letters
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.
