Jean-Charles Bolomey’s groundbreaking work on rapid near-field techniques has helped revolutionize the domain of electromagnetic field measurement. Using the modulated scattering technique, during the 1980s Prof. Bolomey demonstrated that simultaneously fast and accurate near-field measurements were possible using probe arrays. This greatly reduced the measurement time compared to the conventional mechanical scan of probes and is now used worldwide in characterizing intentional or nonintentional radiating systems. He also applied the benefits of probe arrays to microwave-based imagery for industrial and medical applications. A pioneer in applying microwave techniques for tomographic imaging, Prof. Bolomey developed a camera with more than 1,000 sensors to provide some of the first-ever images of isolated and perfused organs.
