Colloquium: Prof. Sima Noghanian
Friday Feb 13, 2015, 4:00–5:00pm, 211 Witmer Hall. Refreshments at 3:30pm in 215 Witmer Hall.
Antenna Design for Biomedical Applications
Wireless biomedical devices impose many challenges on the design of antennas. This talk will provide an overview of recent research activities in the Applied Electromagnetics Engineering Laboratory (AEMEL) at the University of North Dakota on antenna and electromagnetic system designs for biomedical applications. In the first part of the talk the research on microwave imaging for cancer detection will be presented and the second part will be dedicated to the design of wearable and implantable antennas and sensors.
