Frequency domain measurement of permeability of M400HH ferrite rods in the VHF range




ferrite antenna, ferrite rods, effective magnetic permeability, frequency domain measurement


The frequency dependences of effective magnetic permeability of ferrite rods of the grade M400HH in the VHF range have been obtained by measurement in the frequency domain. These rods can be used in pulse UWB receiving antennas to increase sensitivity in the low frequency part of the VHF range.
