Abstract

In this paper, a hardware advancement for a microwave multi-static system for breast cancer detection is presented. In particular, we propose a metasurface-enhanced antenna capable of enhancing relevant 'weak' signals backscattered by a tumour-mimicking target inserted in a breast phantom. Furthermore, we simulate a radar-based approach in CST Microwave Studio and use our previously developed Huygens principle-based algorithm to produce images of the target. Our results indicate that the proposed metasurface-enhanced antenna can improve target localization and decrease image artefacts.
