Paper Abstract

In this paper we suggest to use quasi-optical resonator withdielectric inclusion for moisture measurements of gases. This methodemployes the electromagnetic frequency in the range of 35 to 150 GHz.The main idea of the approach is a registration of moment of dew pointor phase transitions on cooling dielectric element of the resonatorusing the changes of resonator characteristics. The results of moisturemeasurements of air at atmospheric pressure using a barrel-shapedresonator with a dielectric bar are given. It is shown that suchelectrodynamical structures allow to registrate the dew point and phasetransitions as "water-ice" and "ice-water" at cooling dielectric bar byPeltier element. The experiments were carried out at frequenciesfc=136 GHz.
