Open resonator microwave sensors allow very accurate sensing of properties such as moisture content and dimensions of dielectrics such as rubber, polymers, paper, fabrics and wood veneers. This book presents a coherent and entirely practical approach to the design and use of systems based on these sensors in industrial environments, showing how they can provide meaningful, accurate and industrially viable methods of gauging.
