WHITTOW and EDWARDS, 2006. A study of changes to specific absorption rates in the mucous membrane close to perfectly conducting spectacles within the radio frequency range 0.8 to 2.6 GHz. IN: Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference, Loughborough, 2006.
Abstract—this paper investigates the effects of metallic spectacles on the Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) in
the mucous membrane in the human head, using the FDTD method. The excitation is a vertically polarised plane
wave traveling from the front of the face to the back of the head. The frequency range considered is 0.8 to
2.6GHz. Metallic spectacles were found to significantly change the SAR in the mucous membrane.
