PhD offer: Millimeter-wave technologies for biomedical electromagnetics : multi-physics microdosimetry

Context

Millimeter-wave (MMW) technologies are increasingly used for various applications. In particular, they have been used for high data rate communications [> 5 Gb/s] and 60-GHz technologies are expected to be integrated in the near future in the next generation mobile systems. Besides, it was suggested that MMW can be used for a number of biomedical applications, including remote monitoring of wounds and non-invasive detection of glucose levels. Recently, our research team has demonstrated the possibility of selective focusing of heating in cutaneous and sub-
cutaneous layers by means of MMW for thermal treatments. This opens a door to new potential applications of MMW in the field of biomedical electromagnetics, including selective targeting of skin cancers.

Description

The main purpose of this PhD research project, available at the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes (IETR), UMR CNRS 6164 in a close collaboration with experts from the Institute for Research on Environmental and Occupational Health (IRSET), Rennes, France, is to analyze EM field and temperature distributions at cellular level in order to gain an insight into local micro- and submm-scale phenomena occurring during exposure of the human body to MMW.
