Millimeter waves is expected to be used for indoor broadband wireless access for its rich frequency spectrum resources. To implement the indoor MMW wireless system, it is important to know its propagation characteristics in building, which are governed by the transmission properties of construction materials. This paper focuses on the measurements of reflection characteristics and refractive indices of some interior construction materials (such as glass, brick, plaster board, silencing board, etc.) at Ka-band. The free-space reflection method was used to measure the reflection and transmission coefficients. Then the complex refractive indices of various materials could be calculated by using the Fresnel's formula.
