Whispering-Gallery mode resonator method has been presented for complex permittivity evaluation of low loss dielectric materials in millimeter wave region. As a problem, it has been found that the evaluation error slightly dependens on the frequency for a sample. It comes from approximated analysis which is used in the procedure. In this paper, a mode-matching method is applied to this evaluation technique to have improvement of the measrued results. It is confirmed experimentally that reliability of the presented method is improved for the millimeter wave permittivity measurement.
