Abstract

This paper presents an experimental setup for the wideband RF characterization of plasma Micro Hollow Cathode Sustained Discharge (MHCD). This microdischarge is studied as a candidate for integrated active component in antennas, using the change of permittivity caused by the presence of plasma. The measurement setup consists of a 50Ω microstrip line with a single MHCD placed in its center. The measurement of the scattering parameters of the experimental device permits the evaluation of the complex permittivity and conductivity of the MHCD.
