In this paper, we calculated resonant frequency and unloaded Q-factor for the TM0i0 resonant mode excited in a cylindrical cavity composed of walls with finite conductivity and with a dielectric rod loaded coaxially along the central axis. Formulation for the calculation is made using the mode-matching method. Convergence of the calculation is checked. Values calculated by the present method for various combinations of dimensions, permittivity, and conductivity of the inner-components of cavity are compared with those calculated by a conventional method formulated using loss-less electromagnetic fields of cavity. Although the difference between the values calculated by those two methods is usually small, it is found that the difference increases as permittivity of dielectric rod increases and becomes about 10-6 in reciprocal of unloaded Q-factor of the loaded cavity in a presented case.
