> 8. Microwave and terahertz applications in biology and medicine

Chairs: Alexander Shkurinov, M. V. Lomonosov State University, Russia (coordinator)

Kirill Zaytsev, Prokhorov General Physics Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia, Olga Cherkasova, Institute of Laser Physics of SB RAS, Novosibirsk, Russia, Irina Dolganova, Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Moscow, Russia, Daria Tuchina, Saratov State University, Saratov, Russia

The session is dedicated to modern developments in the microwave and terahertz technology for biomedical applications. The main topics will cover fundamental aspects of microwave and terahertz radiation – tissue interactions, immersion optical clearing of tissues in the microwave and terahertz ranges, novel emitters, detectors, optical systems and emerging modalities of high resolution spectroscopy and imaging for microwave and terahertz biophotonics. Special attention will be paid to applications of microwave and terahertz technology in non-invasive and intraoperative medical diagnoses.
