Abstract

In this paper, a rectangular-cavity-type exposure system for in vitro experiments has been developed fur the biological effect studies of radio frequency fields from handhold wireless telephones. It ia fed with a ${\lambda}_g/8$ monopole antennas at the ${\lambda}_g/4$ position of the top plate in order to excite fundamental $TE_{102}$ mode and it allows the uniform exposure of one 8.5 cm(inner diameter) petri dish. SARs inside the exposed medium have been characterized by numerical simulations, using the FDTD method and by experimental dosimetry with fiberoptic temperature probes (model 790, Luxtron Corp.).
