Recent Developments

Periodically, new bits of data, improved and new DI software and fixture capabilities are reported here.

DI Model M035 Liquid/Powder Cell (DataBit5)

3.5mm Cell for Liquids & Powders to 26 GHz.

To request our release about the Model M035T 3.5mm cell, click here and write your e-mail address in the message space. Let us know about the powders and liquids you wish to measure. The cell operates up to 26 GHz and is used to obtain complex mu and complex epsilon under the instrument control of DI's "MU-EPSLN™" software package.

Software for R & S Analyzers (DataBit6)

Damaskos, Inc. has extended its "Cavity™" software package, which supports Anritsu and Agilent analyzers, to include control of the Rohde & Schwarz ZVC and ZVK network analyzers. Other DI packages are also being extend for R & S support. The following table shows the measurement of a low loss dielectric which was made in a DI Model 600T Open Resonator/"Cavity™" software setup with the R & S model ZVK analyzer.

DI Thin Sheet Testers and Open Resonators Measure Paint Properties (DataBit2)

This table shows the results of measuring epsilon and loss tangent of a coating of paint which is applied to a substrate for support. Both bare substrate and painted substrate are measured and the paint are then extracted via DI's "Cavity" software package. The measurement were made in a Model 03 Thin Sheet Tester and in a Model 900T Open Resonator. This technique is a new feature of DI's thin sheet testers and open resonators.
