Abstract

Integrated dielectric, conductor, and magnetic materials enhance the functionality of electronic microsystems. For example, high permittivity materials can be incorporated into low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) packages for miniaturized microwave filters and antennas. The dielectric constant (k) of commercial LTCC tape ranges between 5 and 10, and experimental higli-k tapes have dielectric constants as high as 400. Ring resonators are effective structures for dielectric permittivity measurement at microwave frequency. The electromagnetic fields in a ring resonator were effectively simulated by a finite difference time domain (FDTD) method which yields accurate dielectric data. In addition, low cost nickel electrodes are driving materials development for multilayer ceramic capacitors. The magnetic permeability of nickel was determined from a ring resonator measurement, which is important for understanding the role of nickel on skin depth and the surface resistance at microwave frequency.
