11. Concluding Remarks
Recently, research on microwave imaging and sensing becomes more and more significant because it is applied in various fields such as medical care and intelligent transportation system. The 8th URSI-C workshop was held to study on this topic and to offer a chance for deep discussion. Before the workshop, a guided tour in the National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) was held and participants observed the control room, helium liquefier and vacuum chamber parts.
In the workshop, we invited three distinguished lecturers. First, assistant professor Toshifumi Moriyama from Nagasaki University has presented his research entitled "Inversion method without a information on incident fields". Then, Dr. Masaki Hangai from Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has presented the research of his project entitled "High frequency GaN device for the radar and sensing technology". Finally, Professor Yoshio Nagayama from NIFS has made the lecture entitled "Nuclear fusion research and its application to microwave imaging". He has reviewed present status and future prospect for the nuclear fusion research, and presented the plasma diagnostic technology using the microwave camera and its application to the breast cancer screening.
Researchers of the electromagnetic wave science and nuclear fusion science had fruitful discussion on the cutting-edge technologies and obtained valuable information.
