MODIFICATION OF CLASSICAL TEST DEVICES AND PROTOCOLS FOR ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF METAMATERIAL PERMEABILITY BASED ON THE ANALYTIC MORPHOLOGY-FUNCTION F MODIFICATION OF CLASSICAL TEST DEVICES AND PROTOCOLS FOR ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF METAMATERIAL PERMEABILITY BASED ON THE ANALYTIC MORPHOLOGY-FUNCTION F The proposed work addresses the difficulties arising from measurement of complex permeability () of metamaterial samples, specifically small samples where the permeable material content may be as small as a single film of micron-scale thickness. The most common approach is to use a perturbation based permeability extraction method. One of the main problems with this method is the assumption that the field distribution over this small sample is uniform, which is not true. Another typical drawback is the need for a known reference sample for calibration. We will demonstrate that our general methodology based on a robust analytic theory  addresses these difficulties and that it can be applied to a variety of classical test fixtures and measurement systems to increase the accuracy and reliability of the reported permeability. Algorithms and user manuals will be delivered for two of the classical test fixtures with enough detail that will enable the user to apply the methodology to other existing or future test devices.
