Abstract

The goal of this project was to make improvements to an original RF calorimeter designed by Saimir Barjami for his doctoral dissertation, by increasing the range of available operating frequencies. This project increased the frequencies available through additional matching networks, and simulated results of several possible experiments. These simulations were provided through an original tool allowing adjustment of all relevant variables to predict the behavior of a variety of samples in any similar RF calorimeter.
