I need a part or material for a planned experiment (the experiment is similar to those described in my articles http://arxiv.org/abs/1208.0066 and http://arxiv.org/abs/1109.1626 ). The problem is that the required resistivity (about 0.3 Ohm-cm or of the same order of magnitude) is much higher than that of metals and much lower than that of dielectrics. Eventually, I need a long cylindrical part, about 1.5 mm diameter and about 1 m length. So far I have considered semiconductors, conducting polymers, and absorbing materials of http://www.eccosorb.com/Collateral/Documents/English-US/Electrical%20Parameters/ls%20parameters.pdf . The latter materials seem good, but they are essentially foams, and the required part cannot be machined from them. As for semiconductors and conductive polymers, I don't have a clear idea how to get (to order) a material with the required resistivity and how to make (to order) the required part. I need the above resistivity at a frequency of about 25 GHz, so, in principle, I could use a nonconductive, but absorbing (at the required frequency) material, but I would prefer a material that is conducting for direct current as well, to be able to measure the absorbed power. I would prefer a material with decent mechanical properties, so that I could, e.g., strain (tighten) the cylindrical part.
