The SWISSto12 Material Characterisation Kit (MCK) gives real time access to dielectric and magnetic proprieties of samples at study with accurate S-parameter measurements.
The MCK (pat.pend.) is based on the SWISSto12 corrugated waveguides. The MCK design allows for a compact, reliable and easy to operate instrument. A robust calibration kit and routine are included along with a data acquisition and analysis software. The SWISSto12 MCK enables versatile measurement capabilities for commercially available mm-wave and THz test and measurement equipment.

Novel
The Material Characterization Kit (MCK) is based on SWISSto12 circular corrugated waveguides and converters (pat. pend.)

The MCK is available for frequency bands from WR-15+ (45-75 GHz) up to WM-250 (750-1100GHz) and compatible with standard UG387/UM flanges.

Compact
The MCK allows for accurate S parameter measurements either with:

  • Full 2 port configuration with S11, S22, S21 and S12 measurements.
  • Hybrid configuration with S11 and S21 measurements

See below: Measurement examples with fitted permittivity model assuming constant εR and tanδ over the WR-1.5 band (500 - 750 GHz)
Fast
Real time access the dielectric and magnetic properties of your sample with accurate S parameter measurements:
  • Insert a short in the sample slit and normalise the S11 (S22) trace.
  • Measure through w/o sample and normalise the S21 (S12) trace.
  • Open the slit, insert your sample and record the data.
  • Use the SWISSto12 software to translate S parameter data into material properties

The MCK is also compatible with the materials measurements software from Keysight Technologies.
