WHITTOW, W. G. ... et al, 2008. Effect of tongue jewellery and orthodontist metallic braces on the SAR due to mobile phones in different anatomical human head models including children. 2008 Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference, Loughborough, UK, 17-18 March, pp. 293-296
This paper has used the Finite-difference Time-domain (FDTD) computer simulation technique to
investigate Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) in different human head models with metallic jewellery. A dipole
excitation has been placed in front of the nose of 4 anatomical heads including a 5 year old and a 12 year old
child’s head. Metallic tongue jewellery and orthodontist metallic braces were added to the models and the SAR
was investigated over a range of communication frequencies.
