Microapps Seminar
TUMA28: Materials Characterization and Assessment for 5G/mmWave Applications
Tuesday, June 21 / 4:15-4:30 p.m.
Speakers: Malgorzata Celuch, QWED and Say Phommakesone, Keysight Technologies
Location: Show Floor Booth 9110

This Microapps presentation will discuss results from iNEMI’s 5G/mmWave Materials Assessment and Characterization project, summarizing the EM principles of the chosen techniques and the results of the round-robin results. It will introduce attendees to the measurement set-ups available for hands-on experience in the exhibition booths of Keysight and QWED. A more detailed discussion of project results will be featured in Industry Workshop Session IWTH3 (see below).

Industry Workshop / Session IWTH3
Materials Characterization and Assessment for
5G-mmWave Applications

Wednesday, June 22, 1:30-3:10 p.m.
Location: 205/207
This session will discuss the results of the iNEMI 5G/mmWave Materials Assessment and Characterization project concerning the benchmarking of existing microwave techniques for materials characterization from the viewpoint of their applicability, reproducibility, repeatability, and accuracy, when applied to 5G/mmWave materials. Four techniques (SCR, SPDR, BCDR, FPOR) have been identified and tested in a round-robin of 10 sample kits (including precision Teflon, COP, and fused silica) circulated between 10 laboratories.
The Workshop comprises four 15-minute presentations followed by 45 minutes of hands-on exercises (with Keysight and QWED equipment), then closes with a 15-minute discussion.
