Open Resonator Method
for Sheet and Ultra Thin Sheet
Dielectric Constant and Dielectric Loss Tangent(Dk/Df)
(Millimeter Wave) Measurement System

Model No. DPS03
Highly accurate Millimeter Wave measurement ! Ideal solution for 76.5GHz, 110GHz etc. measurement !!

KEYCOM’s ultra-thin sheet measurement system employs the Fabry-Perot resonator, a linear optical resonator which consists of two highly reflecting mirrors, which combines the high measurement accuracy in the millimeter wave range and simplicity of installing the specimens.
It is also ideal for specimens with low tanδ.

・ Very accurate measurement : ex. PTFE@76.5GHz / εr' 2.05, tanδ 0.0004
・ Measurement of ultra-thin film(ex. 5μm)
・ Easy operation
・ Measurement frequency range : 18GHz-110GHz
