The 16453A Dielectric Material Test Fixture is designed for accurate dielectric constant and loss tangent measurements on the E4991A
. It employs the parallel plate method, which sandwiches the material between two electrodes to form a capacitor. The E4991A/4291A/4291B measures the capacitance created from the fixure, and option 002 firmware calculates the relative complex permittivity as described in the 16451B
. Adjustment to insure parallel electrodes is required when using the 16451B. This adjustment is not required with the 16453A because the fixure has a flexible electrode that adjusts automatically to the material surface.
