In this paper and for the first time, nonlinear behaviour of an electronically tuneable electrochromic (EC) thin film material is investigated experimentally at microwave frequencies. The measurement setup based on the single tone method uses identical topologies for test cells based on SiO2 or Silicone Dioxide (SD) and EC dielectric materials for a mutual comparison study of the nonlinear behaviour of the tuneable EC dielectric. The measured third-order intercept point of EC test cells is around 80 dBm, which is larger than typical values for other tuneable technologies such as ferroelectrics and liquid crystals (LCs).
