WHITTOW and EDWARDS, 2007. On specific absorption rates in the human mucous membrane with conducting spectacles at mobile phone frequencies by FDTD simulation. IN: Proceedings of the 4th LASTED International Conference, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 30-June 1, 2007
An anatomically correct FDTD head phantom was used to
study SAR levels in the mucous membrane found in the
lining of the nose, sinuses and ears. The membrane is
found to absorb significant levels of energy when
illuminated by a plane wave from the front of the head.
The frequency range considered is 0.8 to 2.6GHz.
Metallic spectacles were found to significantly change the
SAR in the eyes and mucous membrane.
