Risks from Electromagnetic Sources


The electric and magnetic field strengths are simulated in the human head model at various frequency spectrums and the specific absorption rate (SAR) is computed. The biological influence of the electromagnetic fields is thus investigated to pose some undesirable effects on the living bodies. It is shown that higher frequencies have significantly higher absorption of the electromagnetic energy. In this paper the HFSS software has been used.
