PROPOSED METHOD FOR LIPOPROTEIN CONCENTRATION IN BLOOD USING MICROWAVE RESONATOR
This report is used to design a microwave microfluidic sensor to measure the lipoprotein concentration in human blood plasma. Microwave engineering is an important material characterization technology as it is used in many applications. Microwave resonant is one of the sensors used to classify the material and one of the most sensitive sensors for the measurement of dielectric properties. It has been suggested that the resonant approach be used in this project because of its accuracy and sensitivity. A compact sensor based on the Split Ring Resonator is proposed to observe the relative permittivity of various types of blood, enabling the determination of lipoprotein content in human blood. The split ring resonators could be placed on a microfluid to test the protein in the blood. The resonator is proposed at 6 GHz using Rogers. The tool CST software is used to design a split-ring resonator and microwell to decide which design parameters are most important in maintaining resonant behavior. The results show the coupling gap, and the ring radius has the greatest effect on the maintenance of resonant behavior. The predicted outcome of the s-parameter response is based on the dielectric constant and the relative allowability of different blood levels based on the previous research paper.
