Abstract : In the patent, a microstrip cavity type transmission line having a lossy center conductor provides attenuation and reflection coefficient information in response to the disturbing effects of proximate conducting surfaces or plasma. Equivalent conductance and susceptance of the plasma and the proximity of conducting surfaces can be determined by using such information to solve standard transmission line formulas.
