The detection of non metallic impurities inside packed products or the visualization of biological effects is a new research field for the millimetre wave frequency range. The range of possible applications covers sensors for production lines, medical scanner and biological applications. This paper gives an overview about the ongoing projects at FGAN-FHR, describes the measurement system and shows the advantages and disadvantages of imaging systems using mmW-radiation.
