REGISTRATION is FREE OF CHARGE. Registration is required. The Zoom link will be emailed to you the Friday before the Webinar.

Abstract:“Holography captures interference patterns created when a continuous wave is intercepted by a second wave, usually reflected from a object near the point of capture. Holograms are usually generated using monochromatic light sources such as lasers and are captured onto high resolution detectors to create a 3-D image. Most commercial microwave sources are effectively monochromatic and an array of antennas can be used to capture the interference patterns between the mutually coupled fields from a transmitting antenna to the receiving antennas and the secondary fields, which are reflected from objects in front of the antenna systems. The advantage of microwave holography is that the long wave lengths of microwave fields will pass through relatively homogenous materials like wood, soil, concrete etc., and can be used to detect objects embedded in these materials. This webinar will provide some background to holography and illustrate how microwave holography has been used in some practical applications.”
