Description

We demonstrate the feasibility of a moisture meter which senses the complex permittivity of materials non-destructively. The test materials can be non-conductive solids, particulates or liquids. The meter consists of a sensor plus ancillary electronics. The sensors operate in the microwave region to mitigate certain problems of penetration depth, electrode polarization and ionic conductivity which are encountered in other frequency bands.
