Abstract: [1] In this paper a set of frequency domain (500 Hz to 1 MHz) experimental data on electrical and magnetic parameters of magnetite/silica mixtures as Martian soil simulants is presented. Complex permittivity was obtained by measuring the magnitude and phase of the electrical impedance of a capacitive cell filled with the tested material. Complex magnetic permeability was obtained by measuring the impedance of a toroid fully embedded in the mixtures. Both the permittivity and magnetic permeability exhibited an…
