Radar-Imaging – An Introduction to the Theory Behind

Sprache: Englisch

Have you ever been scanned at the airport during passenger screening? Luckily, one is not scanned by X-rays as our hand luggage. Instead, millimeter waves are used to create 3D images of the body seeing through clothing. But, this technology can be used for more applications. Non-destructive testing for quality assurance within the production process of industrial goods or groceries are another potential application. But how does the technology work? How are those high-resolution images created? What are the basic principles behind the imaging method? The presentation will provide a theoretical introduction into 3D millimeter wave imaging. If you have a technical or scientific background and think about working in that field, this can guide you the first step towards a theoretical understanding of digital near-field radar imaging.
