Advanced Materials in Microwaves and Optics
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The goal of this collection of peer-reviewed papers is to bring together researchers from academia and industry, as well as practitioners, so as to share ideas, problems and solutions related to the multifaceted aspects of Advanced Materials in Microwaves and Optics.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: One hundred forty-two papers presented at the September 2011 conference explore technologies based on microwave frequency electromagnetic waves, particularly images and algorithms for remote sensing. Three research papers from the China University of Mining and Technology in Beijing improve the positioning accuracy of portables GPS receivers, classify airborne Lidar scan data by echo, and compare methods for detecting forest resource changes. Two papers from Henan University of Technology propose a co-registration algorithm for spotlight SAR interferometry and a RELAX algorithm for spotlight SAR imaging. Other topics include pattern recognition of carbonate rocks in RS images, the synthesis of nanocrystalline anatase by a microwave hydrothermal method, the optical and thermal properties of Asian dust over the ocean, thordon bearings lubricated with seawater, and QoS evaluation for web services composition.
