ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries.

This work is concerned with the use of shielded loop antennas to measure permittivity as a low-cost alternative to expensive probe-based systems for biological tissues and surrogates. Beginning with the development of a model for simulation, the shielded loop was characterized. Following the simulations, the shielded loop was tested in free space and while holding a cup of water. The results were then compared. Because the physical measurements and the simulation results did not line up, simulation results were forgone. The shielded loop antenna was then used to measure a set of NaCl saline solutions with varying molarities. This measurement …
