This paper describes the application of dielectric resonators (DR) to the measurements of surface impedance of microwave susceptors. We demonstrate that the single-post (SiPDR) configuration is applicable to plain susceptors before use, while the split-post (SPDR) configuration - to crazed susceptors after use. Attention is given to the full characterisation of active packaging, that is, the influence of paper support on the overall electric losses is also investigated. The measurements can be

Finally, an extension of dielectric resonator measurements to surface imaging is presented, achieved by incorporating the resonator in a 2D automatic scanner.
