Abstract : The high-powered traveling wave test system for measuring the complex dielectric constant of polycrystalline and single crystal material was completed and placed in operation at C-band. Analyses of the variation of the transmission, reflection, and attenuation of a sample geometry is shown and calculations on samples of finite length were carried out to determine optimum operating conditions of a traveling wave system for maximum sensitivity of the measured circuit parameters as a function of small changes in dielectric constant and loss tangent. These analyses were completed. Analysis of cavity systems for measuring the variation of loss tangent and dielectric constant with field was completed and cavities designed. (Author)
