Herein we present a technique for performing complex permittivity measurements with an overmoded, evanescently perturbed coaxial resonator at microwave frequencies. The design of a noninvasive electromagnetic coupling structure, which allows transmission measurements to be taken from one end of a resonant section of coaxial cable, is discussed in detail. Quasi-spectral information was obtained through the exploitation of higher order resonances, and complex permittivity measurements of a number of common industrial solvents were taken at multiple discrete frequencies between 1 and 8 GHz. A combination of experimental and simulated results was used also to characterise the device behavior. The high stability of temporal measurements, coupled with the robustness of the design, make this device ideal for analytical chemistry and industrial process control.
