Estimation and Control of Electromagnetic Energy

The focus of this research project is the understanding and control of the interaction of electromagnetic fields with various media including human tissue, underground contaminants and electromechanical materials. It is well known that such media are dispersive in their response to short microwave pulses. What is not well understood are the mechanisms for dispersion.

CRSC research efforts are focused on the development and validation of dispersion models using measured scattered electromagnetic field intensity. This entails attenuation mechanisms in the context of Maxwell's equations for the propagation of electromagnetic fields in complicated dielectric media. The desired end product of the research effort are efficient software packages for the identification of dielectric constants, conductivity, and polarization in biological and other materials such as peizoelastomers. Coupled with this effort on modeling and identification are the development of theoretical and computational methods for localization and control of incident electromagnetic energy in such materials.

CRSC researchers participating in these projects include H.T. Banks and K. Ito and their graduate students in collaboration with scientists at Brooks AFB and at Lord Corporation.
