This highly valuable software and book package helps you understand and work with the Q factor (quality factor) of resonant cavities and transmission line resonators. You get the tools you need to design and test electrical filters and oscillators in the high frequency and microwave range. This powerful resource also helps practitioners measure permittivity and permeability of solid and liquid materials. The most accurate Q factor measurement procedure consists of fitting the measured data to a circle on the Smith chart. The accompanying book covers this procedure and describes three basic methods of measurement: reflection, reaction, and transmission. This practical software features time-saving programs in MATLAB language that accept the Touchstone file format of data measured with the network analyzer. The results of data processing contain the loaded and unloaded Q, the coupling loss ratio, and the uncertainty estimates caused by random errors. The open source code of the programs can be modified to fit your particular needs. You find clear examples of measured and simulated data files that help you fully understand how to use all the programs included.
