About This PhD Project

Project Description

The aim is to assess how much power is absorbed in the human body from exposure to radiation from mobile phones, hand-held radios, and other microwave sources. At York we have recently developed a new approach to measuring the relevant parameter, the specific absorption rate (SAR). Our novel method is applicable to reverberant environments, such as aircraft, trains and lifts (elevators), where owing to highly reflective surfaces the waves can reach the body from all directions. Using state-of-the-art microwave test equipment together with computational electromagnetic codes, you will develop this into a technique that has medical, biological and safety applications, and leads to a better understanding of the interactions between electromagnetic waves and the body.
