Exploration into the Development of Miniaturised Electromagnetic Wave Detection Methods for Medical Diagnostics

Supervisor: Dr Yasir Alfadhl

Research group(s): Antennas and Electromagnetics

The interaction of Electromagnetic (EM) waves with the human body has been the subject of numerous studies, and has resulted in the development of various diagnostic and treatment applications. This project aims to explore into the development of advanced miniaturised and wearable diagnostic EM systems for monitoring the dynamic impedance and other parameters within the human body. The developed technology could provide information on a number of parameters which could be used as diagnostic tools for monitoring the human body condition.
