PANAGAMUWA, C.J. (2006). A study of the validation of RF energy specific absorption rates for simulations of anatomically correct head FDTD simulations and truncated DASY4 standard equipment measurements. Proceedings of The European Conference on Antennas and Propagation : EuCAP 2006, Nice, France
This paper presents results of a study concerning the
modification of a generic DASY4 twin phantom SAR
kit (designed for measurements of mobile phones held
to the ear) to facilitate SAR measurements of personal
data assistant mobile communications equipment held in
front of the face. The source used was a half
wavelength dipole illuminating a SAM phantom face.
Two half heads bonded together were used and the
effect of removing the rearmost part of the phantom
head were considered. Results from FDTD simulations
show the effects of the modification. When a 60mm
section is removed from the back of the head, the 1g and
10g SAR values at 900MHz deviate by about 2.4% and
at 1800MHz by about 0.3% from the values obtained
with the full head.
