Composites provide possibilities to combine the properties of different materials in order to obtain materials with the necessary parameters (low loss, absorbing, reflective materials, etc.). According to their structure, composite materials are conventionally divided into the microtextures and macrotextures. In turn, these materials may be passive or active. The properties of passive composite materials are invariable, and the properties of active ones can be altered using different effects: electric, magnetic, thermal, etc. In this article we present the results of theoretical and experimental investigations of various microwave dielectric-based composite structures. Particular attention is given to high-Q microwave structures with electrical control.
