symposium

I was pleased to attend the 6th International Workshop on Computational Human Phantoms in Annapolis, MD, in August 2017. The conference was held at the Loews Annapolis Hotel. My team at Ellumen Inc. and I presented some of the results of our research and development efforts. The paper presented was titled, “Microwave Detection of an Osteophyte in a Knee.” A radar based microwave imaging algorithm was used to detect a small abnormal growth in a knee joint. An image was presented showing that it may be possible to use a microwave method for detecting an osteophyte in the knee.

Below are several pictures while at the conference and around Annapolis.

I was pleased to attend the IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in San Diego, CA, in July 2017. The conference was held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. My team at Ellumen Inc. and I presented some of the results of our research and development efforts. We were part of the Inverse Scattering and Imaging: Systems Interactive Forum. The paper I contributed on and helped present was titled “Experimental Microwave Near-field Detection with Moveable Antennas.” A microwave detection system was described and accompanying microwave images using the system were shown. My colleague presented a paper titled, “A Novel Dual-Band Beam-Switching Antenna Based on Active Frequency Selective Surfaces.” This presentation covered discussion of a dual-band beam switching antenna based on frequency selective surfaces capable of being used in modern wireless communications systems.

Below are a few pictures at and around the conference.
