3D Imaging of Water Behavior at Millimeter Wavelength

Languages of publication
During the transmission of electromagnetic radiation through a medium containing water molecules, portions of the electromagnetic spectrum are absorbed by water molecules. This water absorption occurs preferentially at certain characteristic wavelengths while the balance of the spectrum is transmitted with minimal effects. This characteristic of water provides advantages but also some disadvantages in science and engineering applications. Especially in remote sensing applications, it may cause to produce incorrect information. So identification of behavior of electromagnetic wave in water is significantly important. Some of the studies based on electromagnetic wave behavior in water are bio-medical researches, sensors, transmitters, accumulators, organic-inorganic materials, and microwave ovens. In this paper, based on the water's absorption of electronic wave property, a plastic cup as half-full of water is imaged using near field microwave system. After being processed with 3D-DLL algorithm it is imaged as 3D with IRIS software. A robotic system is used for data collection process. Transmission and reflection measurements of system are done with N5230A network analyzer.
