Advances in near-field methods, used in applications ranging from high-resolution imaging to electromagnetic compatibility, will be the focus of ICONIC 2007, the third annual International Conference on Electromagnetic Near-Field Characterization and Imaging.
The conference will be held June 27-29 at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in St. Louis.
Approximately 85 researchers from 13 countries will take part in the conference, says conference chair Dr. Reza Zoughi, the Schlumberger Professor of electrical and computer engineering at UMR and director of UMR’s Applied Microwave Nondestructive Testing Laboratory.
The conference’s keynote speaker, Dr. D. Mittleman of Rice University, will discuss recent advances in the generation and manipulation of electromagnetic waves with frequencies near one terahertz, a region that offers many opportunities for imaging and sensing applications.
Other invited speakers include Dr. T. Hubing of Clemson University, Dr. S. Hagness of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and R. Lasser of Imperium Inc.
The program’s 11 technical sessions will feature more than 75 papers on topics such as breast cancer detection, biomedical applications, high-resolution electromagnetic imaging, electromagnetic compatibility and non-destructive evaluation.
