RF Spectroscopy basics

This page describes RF spectroscopy basics and mention RF spectroscopy manufacturers.

RF spectroscopy

Figure mentions the waveform captured using RF spectroscopy instrument. This process rely on subjecting the tissue under electric field. The instrument measures the response of the E-field to produce the EM signature as shown in the figure.

The RF spectroscopy helps to differentiate between normal and malignant tissues. This technique is used to detect the cancerous body part.

There are various Spectroscopic techniques as outlined below:
• Vibrational Spectroscopy (IR and Raman)
• UV-vis spectroscopy
• Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)
• Electron Spin Resonance (ESR)
• X-ray spectroscopy
• Electron spectroscopy
• Mössbauer spectroscopy
• Mass spectroscopy
• Thermal analysis

Principle of operation

Spectroscopic techniques as mentioned work on the principle that under certain conditions materials emit or absorb the EM energy. These techniques operate over different and limited radio frequency ranges depending on the various processes and amplitudes. RF spectroscopy operates on radio frequency signal.

RF spectroscopy manufacturers

Following are the list of RF spectroscopy manufacturers.
• MarginProbe system from Dube Medical Devices
• Siemens
• Bruker Corporation
• Oxford Instruments
• Keysight technologies (former Agilent technologies)
• JEOL Ltd.
