In this paper, we suggest the use of a cold plasma as tunable material inside a microstrip resonant cavity. Plasma dielectric constant can indeed be moved to values below 1 to tune its resonant frequency. DC plasma analysis were conducted and integrated into classic electromagnetic solvers to investigate tuning abilities. Numerical simulations are consistent with experimental results and make this original tuning techniques viable for high power applications.
