Scholarship Description: The fellow will work on a project that focuses on the development of an innovative technique for measuring, in a non-invasive way, the electromagnetic fields within a plethora of case scenarios of biological and biomedical interest. Several technologies of common use relies on electromagnetic propagation in their functioning. Cellular phones, laptops, Bluetooth devices, wireless hotspots: all of these devices emit middle-to-high doses of electromagnetic radiation that penetrate materials and tissues in the vicinity.
This project aims to study innovative non-invasive measurements techniques that will be based purely on external field measurements, preventing the use of probing and internal devices. This goal will be achieved by choosing a suitable formulation that will model the EM behavior of the phantom, and will build an internal to external field mapping. After a measurement of the external field the mapping will be inverted and the internal field will be found without necessity of further internal measurements. Critical points in this procedure will be represented by the appropriate treatment of material losses, as well as the suitable modeling of phantoms (and other tissues of interest) that should be as reliable and near to reality as possible, in order to minimize errors and parasitic deviations from actual internal measurements. After the development of the appropriate computational tools necessary for the technique, the proposed measurement procedure will be validated, within the project, with a vast plethora of both canonical problems and challenges arising from real case scenarios.
