RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

penetrating microwave (high frequency) on water. - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi Elia

From your other post it is clear you are making (permittivity??) measurements.

A lot depends on what is mixed with the water and in what ratio. As I mention in my previous post to you, I always used closed containers like coaxial or waveguide transmission support, or resonant cavities, and a Vector Network analyzer or other impedance bridge methods. Containing the field makes the measurement easier to set up and the results more accurate and repeatable, and the errors calculable with confidence.

The open tank free space approach is obviously important if the water is flowing and not static.

What are you considering for the Free Space Method? There are 2 or 3 ways to approach it in that case. What sort of frequency range are you using?
