  • Minimum information for dielectric measurements of biological tissues (MINDER): A framework for repeatable and reusable data 

    Porter, Emily; La Gioia, Alessandra; Salahuddin, Saqib; Decker, Stefan; Shahzad, Atif; Elahi, M. Adnan; O'Halloran, Martin; Beyan, Oya (Wiley, 2017-11-13)
    The dielectric properties of biological tissues characterise the interaction of human tissues with electromagnetic (EM) fields. Accurate knowledge of the dielectric properties of tissues are vital in EM‐based therapeutic ...
  • Modeling of the dielectric properties of biological tissues within the histology region 

    Porter, Emily; La Gioia, Alessandra; Santorelli, Adam; O'Halloran, Martin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-11-27)
    The dielectric properties of biological tissues characterize the interaction of electromagnetic fields with the human body. As such, accurate knowledge of these properties is vital to the design and development of ...
