2) Remote RF Based Vital Signs Sensing: Principles and Implementation
A. Vorobyev, Dr.
VCSEM Co., Neuchatel, Switzerland
ALEXANDER V. VOROBYOV received the M.S. degree in radiophysics and
electronics from Kharkiv State University, Kharkiv, Ukraine, in 2000. In
2002-2003, he was with the Department of Applied Mechanics, Kharkov
Academy of Fire Safety, as an Assistant Lecturer. He was also involved
with remote sensing of natural raw materials with respect to centers of
self-warming up. In 2004, he joined the International Research Centre
for Telecommunications-Transmission and Radar, Delft University of
Technology, and in 2008 received the PhD degree in electrical
engineering. In April 2008, he became a Post-Doctoral Research Associate
at IETR Rennes, France, where he was involved in research on the
development of automotive frontend antenna array radar system with
integrated MEMS based phase shifters. Since May 2012, he is with a
"Wireless Embedded Systems" group at CSEM, Switzerland as Senior R&D
Engineer, mainly involved in RF propagation, RF sensing, antenna design
3) Wave Processes in Moderately and Strongly Nonlinear and Active Hyperbolic Metamaterials and Potential Applications
Prof. Yuriy Rapoport, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Ukraine
Yuriy Rapoport is Dr. of Physical-Mathematical Science. He is Senior research fellow with National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv,
Physics Faculty, Astronomy and Space Physics Dept., Space Physics Laboratory.
He graduated from the same university, Theoretical Physics Dept. in 1978.
Ph.D. thesis: “Interactions of magnetostatic, electromagnetic and acoustic waves in transversally- bounded ferromagnetics” was defenced in 1986.
Dr. Sci. thesis: “Wave processes in layered nonlinear and active metamaterials, gyrotropic and plasma media” was defenced in 2017 on the speciality:
Scientific interests include nonlinear wave processes in the active layered and inhomogeneous media
of different physical nature: metamaterials, plasma structures, system “Earth-Atmosphere-Ionosphere-Magnetosphere (EAIM)”;
mechanisms of wave coupling and synergetic processes, connected with Space Weather in the system EAIM;
strongly nonlinear processes in active nonlinear hyperbolic metamaterials.
