Radio frequency (RF) sensing and imaging

rf sensing and imaging hero

Microwave sensing and imaging utilises electromagnetic waves with frequencies in the range 1GHz to 30GHz, corresponding to wavelengths in free-space between 300mm and 10mm.

These frequencies cover a wide range of applications from telecommunications to radar.

Some examples of the team’s microwave engineering capability include:

  • The measurement of complex permittivity of materials either in waveguide or using a coaxial probe
  • Synthetic aperture radar imaging of tree interiors
  • Design and measurement of frequency selective surfaces (FSS)
