    Heat is generated in a variety of dielectric or electrical insulating materials when subjected to radio and microwave frequencies. This phenomenon has been successfully exploited for over 40 years by industry in a wide range of applications. Radio frequency (RF) is used for about 90% of all dielectric heating applications, but the more recent development of microwave heating is becoming well estab... View full abstract»

  • Microwave and radio-frequency exposure limits

    The paper summarises the exposure limits that have been promulgated by national organisations of different countries, and the rationales that have been advanced for establishing these limits. The limits differ by orders of magnitude, largely because of different philosophical approaches to standard making. The limits were developed, in the first instance, because of concern about high-power radar ... View full abstract»

    There is great interest in the use of heat, either alone or together with radiotherapy or chemotherapy, to treat cancer patients. In the paper, some of the physical techniques for heating tissues are discussed. These methods involve capacitive, inductive or radiative transfer of electromagnetic power to the tissue. Following a brief description of the interaction between tissues and electromagneti... View full abstract»

  • Biological effects of microwaves and radio waves

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):602 - 606
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (857 KB)

    The factors determining the interaction with biological material of radiowaves and microwaves at the macroscopic, cellular and molecular levels are briefly discussed in terms of the relevant physical parameters for electromagnetic radiation in the frequency range 10 MHz¿¿300GHz. This is followed by a summary of the results of the reported animal and in vitro experiments, and it is concluded that, ... View full abstract»

  • Radio-frequency ignition hazards: a review

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):607 - 614

    A review is presented of the studies associated with radio-frequency ignition hazards which have been undertaken since the production of the first British Standard (BS 4992) on this subject in 1974. Initially a brief review is given of the major assumptions used in this standard and its draft revision of 1976 and, then, the research and tests carried out between 1977 and 1981 are discussed in deta...

  • Radar receiver burnout by other radars

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):615 - 620

    A radiation hazard perhaps not generally given sufficient attention is that of one high-power radar burning out the receiver of a nearby system as a result of power coupling via their aerials. A review of various receiver peak-power withstands reveals that pulse power of 0dBW is a suitable working figure for such studies, although individual devices exhibit a fairly wide range of withstand levels....
