Exposure assessments in the frequency range above 10 GHz typically require knowledge of the power density very close to the radiator (at 2-mm distance), which can be obtained through the total electric and magnetic fields. However, phase measurements are often not feasible in this frequency range, in particular in the reactive near field. We developed a novel phase reconstruction approach based on...

The Holland and Simpson thin wire formalism permits arbitrarily thin wires to be accounted for in the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. However, it is known that a parasitic solution may be added to the physical solution when the wires are not parallel to the axes of coordinates. In this paper, we show that the spurious parasitic solutions originate in the distribution of the currents o... View full abstract»
