Engineering the next generation of portable microwave scanners (2018–2021)

This project will engineer a disruptive technology based on microwave hybrid imaging for biomedical applications. It will deliver superfine resolution images using a combination of uniform near-field microwave irradiation and infrared imaging. The project will explore novel microwave antennas design, and engineer a portable platform for diagnostic applications. The proposed low-cost, non-invasive, and safe microwave technology will offer significant advantages over conventional diagnostic platforms. Among many potential applications of profound importance, this innovation will introduce the first portable microwave scanner that can be used for the early detection of skin cancer.
