Microwave dielectric structures for micromechanical alteration of frequency and phase characteristics

The report is devoted to the problem of the development of the basics of creating dielectric control of microwave devices with micromechanical way tuning, allowing use of piezoelectric or electrostrictive actuators for electromechanical tuning the characteristics. In contrast, electrical, magnetic and optical methods of tuning, micromechanical method preserves the high quality factor of the systems, has a wider tuning range of adjustment, and the use of dielectric materials has no restrictions on the fundamental operating frequency up to infrared range.

On the basis of the revealed laws the criteria to ensure the best tuning the microwave characteristics at the lowest possible movement of the metal or dielectric parts of the devices, which will ensure the minimum loss are developed.

The micromechanically tunable phase shifters based on partially-loaded dielectric waveguide, microstrip and coplanar transmission lines, the resonant elements based on strip lines, dielectric and shielded dielectric resonators are theoretically and experimentally investigated. The models of the devices are developed.

Developed new and improved existing methods for measuring the electrical parameters of dielectric materials and films.

Spatially inhomogeneous magnetic field in the technology of radio frequency hyperthermia of malignant tumours

The seminar was devoted to study the effect of spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic field on the synergies in the therapy of malignant tumours and their model-based processes, physical and technical principles of construction applicators antennas for RF mild hyperthermia at which temperature rise in a physiologically acceptable range no more than 1.5-2 centigrade degree. Synergistic factors in mild radiofrequency hyperthermia of malignant tumours are heterogeneous tumour structure, chemotherapy drug, spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic field, spatially distributed temperature induced.
The main result of the investigations is to justify the feasibility of using spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic fields in biological tissue irradiated as a synergistic factor of influence.
Based on the model and the experimental data, the spatial in homogeneity of the field in the context of mild radiofrequency hyperthermia of malignant tumours should be characterized by the number of spatial patterns (field clusters) per irradiation area, their size and the effective difference between the two amplitudes.
As a result of a new approach to the design of the radiating antenna applicators, generating a spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic radiation in the near-field area.
