Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Signal propagation on transmission lines fabricated in thin polyimide films on silicon substrates is investigated. Series resistive and shunt conductive losses are separated and it is shown that the effective dielectric loss is much higher than that expected from bulk material properties.
