abstract

  • In this work, tunable series and parallel resonators based on a nematic liquid crystal cell as variable capacitance are proposed and characterized. Tunable resonance frequencies in the range of kHz have been obtained for the combination of the inductance and the liquid crystal cell (capacitance) used in the proposed circuits. Tuning range in frequency obtained is around an octave.
