Study Type Engineering & Physics
Model Numerical modeling and dosimetry of in vitro RF exposure systems

Dosimetric evaluation (experimental and numerical) of a wide variety of in vitro exposure systems. Design and construction of state-of-the-art exposure systems used in many of the biological research projects supported by the MMF. In a 2005 study (Bioelectromagnetics 26(3):215-24) the authors attempt to replicate the TEM exposure system of Litovitz et al and suggest SARs in the study may have actually been higher than reported (Nikoloski, Kuster et al = 6.0 W/kg per watt of input power vs. Litovitz reported = 2.5 W/kg per watt of input power). Recent project initiated by SNSP funding involves development of an in vitro exposure system for real-time monitoring during RF exposure.
