Abstract

There are many different ways to map underground archaeological features. The open-ended coaxial
probe, described in this paper, is another new prospective method. The principle of this method is to
measure the microwave reflection co-efficient at particular points on the surface to map out subsurface
features. Apart from non-destructive and low cost, a major advantage of this method is the ease of
implementation and the additional data provided. In this paper, the principle of open-ended coaxial
probing is discussed, and some experimental results
