Accurate data of complex permittivity of dielectric substrates are needed for efficient design of HTS microwave planar circuits. We have tested MgO substrates from three different manufacturing batches using a dielectric resonator with superconducting parts recently developed for precise microwave characterization of laminar dielectrics at cryogenic temperatures. The measurement fixture has been fabricated using a SrLaAlO3 post dielectric resonator with DyBa2Cu3O7 end plates and silver-plated copper sidewalls to achieve the resolution of loss tangent measurements of 2 × 10^−6. The tested MgO substrates exhibited the average relative permittivity of 9.63 and tanδ from 3.7 × 10^-7 to 2 × 10^-5 at frequency of 10.5 GHz in the temperature range from 14 to 80 K.
