PhD Thesis: Leaf water analysis of plants in the microwave and THz range

In my PhD thesis I aim to investigate the content and distribution of water in plants and sound out the potential of microwave and THz techniques, in particular with regard to high mobility and cost efficiency, physical contrast mechanisms and genetic factors influencing the water content.
