In this PhD research project would provide new solutions and techniques for endoscopic investigations carried out by clinicians. The concept is new and novel and the project involves design and experimentally testing the antennae that would deliver the RF power to target the drug delivery with precise control of location. It is envisaged that the research would make it possible through novel antenna design to achieve nearfield power transfer as well as mm-wave imaging. The successful design would bring high impact in medical technologies for various diseases that need early diagnosis and treatment which often needs a targeted drug delivery.
