Special Issue sulla rivista ‘Sensors’ – “Microwave Sensors for Biomedical Applications”

Special Issue per la rivista ‘Sensors‘, dal titolo “Microwave Sensors for Biomedical Applications“.

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the adoption of microwave sensors in medicine has been assessed as a convenient approach to non-invasive sensing, diagnostics, and therapy, mainly due to the relatively innocuous nature of microwave radiation and its penetration ability through biological media. Nevertheless, technological advancements are still required to fully exploit the promising advantages of microwaves by properly facing their complex interactions with the human body, which are accurately modeled in terms of its electromagnetic properties when considering the design of microwave sensors.

This Special Issue calls for reporting on recent advances and future challenges in the design of microwave sensors for biomedical applications.

The list of possible topics includes but is not limited to the following:

  • The dielectric characterization of tissues at microwave and millimeter waves;
  • Accurate dielectric models of biological media;
  • Non-invasive microwave sensors for medical diagnostics;
  • Microwave sensors for therapeutic applications.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 June 2019
