Reza Zoughi’s efforts during the past two decades in expanding the utility of microwave and millimeter wave inspection techniques has brought significant recognition to the field of Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation (NDT&E). Dr. Zoughi’s research team has developed millimeter wave imaging systems and methods for inspecting the spray-on foam insulation (SOFI) of the space shuttle’s external fuel tank, in addition to a real-time, high-resolution, and portable microwave camera that is expected to find widespread utility. He has played a leading role in developing near-field microwave and millimeter wave techniques and developed near-field measurement systems using open-ended waveguide and other more sophisticated probes for evaluating a host of defects in thin and thick and layered composite structures.

An IEEE Fellow and a Fellow of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT), Dr. Zoughi is currently the Schlumberger Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), Rolla.
