A microwave method based on the use of microstrip retardation systems for detecting spatial-dispersion effects in superconductors is proposed. Strong phase velocity retardation in a microstrip resonator has been revealed, which is explained by the influence of sharp strip edges, near which high curvature occurs for the coordinate system introduced to search for wave solutions. This circumstance leads to a spatial dependence of the phase velocity on the scale factors of the curvilinear coordinate system and may significantly reduce the phase velocity. Comparative estimates of the spatial effects in samples of a single-crystal high-temperature superconductor (YBaCuO), Nb, and Cu have been obtained from measurements of the total value and increment of the resonance frequency during the transition of the cooling helium from the liquid to gaseous state, depending of the sample position in the field of the microstrip resonator.
