Paper Abstract

A method of determining the dielectric constant of slender cylindrical structures using an open resonator is presented. This method uses a perturbation analysis to determine the frequency shift due to the permits of the cylindrical structure and permits the measurement of very small, fiber- like, structures at a wavelength near 3 mm. The method is tested on glass optical fibers.
