Abstract

We analyze the uncertainties of a complex permittivity extraction procedure based on uncorrected scatteringparameter measurements of coplanar waveguides of different lengths. The uncertainty calculations are performed with the Monte-Carlo method and the sensitivity analysis implemented in the NIST Microwave Uncertainty Framework. We investigate the uncertainty contributions of the input quantities of the permittivity extraction procedure and demonstrate the limits of the achievable uncertainties with practical measurement data.
