A method for reconstruction of the parameters of the Debye or Lorentzian dispersive media is proposed. In this method, S-parameters of a simple parallel-plate fixture filled with the dispersive medium are measured and modeled using the transmission line equations, provided a single TEM mode propagating in this parallel-plate waveguide. The genetic algorithm is used for searching the parameters of the dispersive medium by means of minimizing the discrepancy between the measured and modeled S-parameters. The results are verified using the full-wave FDTD modeling technique.
