The electromagnetic energy at both high and low frequencies can be transmitted into biological materials through the use of antennas or applicators such as medical devices. A major interaction mechanism is through the currents induced in tissues, so effects are dependent on frequency, RF field, and intensity. For safety reason of human body to the radiation, electromagnetic energy restricted to certain level.
The course contents are: (i) antenna and RF field, (ii) biological effects of electromagnetic fields, (iii) human exposure guidelines and standards, effects of electromagnetic fields from medical and wireless devices(iv) methods for computational electromagnetic dosimetry, (v) safety assessment and effects of electromagnetic fields from medical and wireless devices
There will be computer works on computational dosimetry. Student will get familiar with different computational methods.
Assignments should be submitted within 2 weeks after the lecture.
