A vector network analyser is used to study the electrical properties of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) thin films deposited on a fused quartz substrate in the sub-terahertz (THz) frequency ranges of 220-325 GHz (WR3.4) and 325-500 GHz (WR2.2). The experiment is performed in free space. The complex permittivity of the MWCNT thin films is extracted using the Nicholson-Ross-Weir method. The refractive index and conductivity are then determined from the extracted permittivity. The method is validated by comparison with values obtained using THz time-domain spectroscopy.
