In this Letter, we report on measurements of the complex permittivity of highly anisotropic nematic liquid crystals at microwave frequencies as a function of the AC bias voltage. Permittivity measurements have been performed by the split post dielectric resonator technique. The experiments have shown that when the AC bias voltage increases from 0 to 8 V, the real part of the permittivity of these liquid crystals changes by up to 28%. The tunability and the relatively low dielectric losses observed in these liquid crystal mixtures mean that they are ideal materials for the design of tunable microwave components.
