Abstract

A method for investigating the electromagnetic properties of high-Tc superconductors (HTS) in a 2-mm wavelength band has been proposed. The method is based on the use of a cylindrical tube open dielectric resonator (ODR) loaded with a HTS sample. The Josephson harmonic generation at microwave frequencies can be investigated by means of the method. A small cross section of the ODR makes it possible to investigate surface variations of HTS sample electromagnetic properties and their temperature dependencies.
