We demonstrate with detailed analysis that the criticisms in the preceding Comment by Blackstead are largely due to insufficient understanding of the experimental issues associated with our system or the imposition of formalism that is inapplicable to our experiments. In particular, we distinguish the conventional formalism for “field-defined” surface resistance applicable to measurements on samples with filling factors i.e., the ratio of the sample volume to that of the microwave cavity approaching 1 from our “dissipation-defined” surface resistance derived from first principles for measurements on samples with very small filling factors.
