Finite Element Analysis of a Balanced Microstrip Line Filled with Nematic Liquid Crystal.
2009 IEEE/MTT-S INTERNATIONAL MICROWAVE SYMPOSIUM, VOLS 1-3.
(pp. 133 - 136).
Liquid crystals are an attractive medium for millimetre-wave band communications devices due to their large birefringence and reconfigurability. However, characterizing these materials is challenging at these frequencies. This work details simulation tools that have been developed to aid in this process, through the accurate analysis of the liquid crystal orientation and wave propagation.
