Imaging of rebars inside a concrete block is investigated using the quadratic forward model of RF Tomography for three different antenna configurations. Reconstructed images are obtained using the method of moments.

Wave propagation in single layer substrate integrated waveguides (SIWs) loaded by embedded split-ring resonators (ESRRs) is discussed theoretically and experimentally. It is shown that the loaded SIW can support a backward-wave passband below the cutoff frequency (f<sub>c</sub>) of the host SIW or a stopband will appear above f<sub>c</sub> if the effective… (More)
