Wood Characterization by Scanning Millimeter Wave Beam
Keywords:millimeter waves, wood, characterization.
In the present paper the new possibilities of the technique based on the scanning of a wood sample by millimeter wave
beam are discussed. The main idea of the measurement technique operation is the local excitation of millimeter waves in
the sample under test and measurement of transmitted wave amplitude and phase at different points of the sample. All
measurement processes are computer controlled and the measurement results are compiled in the computer. Some
examples of applications of our technique for a wood properties measurement of the plate shape wood samples at
millimeter waves are presented.
