The Activities in our Group

 

The Microwave Group in the Institute of Applied Physics of University of Bern works on different aspects of Remote Sensing techniques. The knowledge within the group spans from Quasi-optical Systems to Atmospheric Physics, from high frequency measurements to data post-processing. SPIRA is now used for studying active illumination techniques, material properties and modeling, data fusion with optical and infrared cameras, characterization of calibration targets and atmosphere analysis.
