This Letter reports experimental observations regarding the significant changes in the transmission modulus and phase of the propagating microwave signals up to 110 GHz in a micromachined coplanar waveguide supported on a dielectric membrane with a thickness of 1.4 m filled with a mixture of carbon nanotubes when exposed to nitrogen gas. These large shifts of amplitude and phase of microwave signals due to gas absorption represent the experimental basis on which a miniature wireless gas sensor could be implemented.
