Abstract

Measurements of the complex dielectric constant of microwave sintered, porous ZnO at 2.45 GHz are presented. The dielectric properties as a function of porosity do not obey the standard Maxwell-Garnet dielectric mixing law with the ceramic material as the major phase, but instead behave as if the ceramic grains always remain in relatively poor electrical contact even at very high densities. Electromagnetic simulations, carried out for a variety of microstructure geometries, are performed to explore this observation. A model which treats the ceramic as an array of grains and pores, with the grains separated from each other by nonor slightly-percolating, fractal-geometry surfaces, provides a good description of the experimental results.
