Abstract:

The development of a precision measurement technique for determining the complex dielectric constant or permittivity of biological molecules in the submillimeterwave range from 100 GHz to 1000 GHz. Research Goals To demonstrate a high-Q submillimeter-wave micro-resonator with sufficient sensitivity to a deposited biological molecule sample to enable precise calculation of the complex dielectric constant. Then to utilize the micro-resonators to collect data on an array of biological molecules ranging from simple to more complex structures.
