Characterization and Detection of Breast Cancer using Ultra Wideband Polarimetric Electromagnetic Transients
Paper in proceedings, 2013

Detection and recognition of metallic targets based on Ultra Wideband electromagnetic transients have been widely studied throughout the years. Due to the complexity of the scattering phenomena, such techniques have not been widely applied for dielectric targets. In this paper, the potential of detection and characterization of dielectric target is investigated. Instead of using single co-polarized linear responses, Ultra wideband polarimetric responses are considered. Numerical example of a breast cancer detection scenario will be used to demonstrate the feasibility of using wideband polarimetric data to characterize dielectric target.
