Abstract

The health effects of mobile communication handsets was evaluated using two spherical models of the head. The first model was made up of a homogeneous material with the electrical characteristics of the brain tissue while the other was constructed out of three spherical shells. The shells simulated skin, fat, bone and brain tissue considered from the outside to the inside of the model. Two different configurations of the antenna, the monopole and the back mounted intermediate frequency (IF) antenna, were used. The SAR values obtained were compared to the exposure limits set by IEEE. The choice of antenna configuration and power are critical for handsets, so that the electromagnetic radiation they emit conforms with international safety standards.
