Radio Frequency Radiation Dosimetry and Its Relationship to the Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields

The North Atlantic Treaty association (NATO) has backed learn aiding improvement of body of workers defense criteria for publicity to Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) for over 1 / 4 century. NATO formerly well-known that the most very important instruments utilized in the RFR results learn laboratory is exact dosimetry while it supported a NATO complex stories Institute (ASI) on Advances in organic results and Dosimetry of Low power Electromagnetic Fields held in 1981, in Erice, Sicily.

Where e is the dielectric permittivity of the medium (generally a tensor), f,0 is the permittivity of free space (8-85 x 10" l 2 Fm'" l ),and/i 0 ( = 47r x 10 7 H m ') expresses the fact that the magnetic properties of an ionized gas are essentially those of free space. 27a) expresses the anisotropy of the medium. Maxwell's equations can be expressed in integral and differential forms. 2&/) where A represents a surface area, v is a closed volume containing an electric charge of density p, J is an electric current density, and s is a closed path.

After a time /, a noncircular wavefront will be as shown. Since the medium is homogeneous there will be no refraction and the energy will travel out radially. On the other hand, the propagation vector k at P is normal to the phase surface and we have the interesting situation in which the energy propagation vector S has a different direction from that of phase propagation k (Ratcliffe 1972). 5b illustrates an equivalent view in which a composite wave is made up of monochromatic plane wavelets with slightly different directions of propagation.

Flares are ranked in importance in several ways; for example, the average optical importance is a measure of flare size and brilliance. The first character ranks the area on a 5-level scale: S (Subflare): ^ 2 0 hemispheric square degrees Importance 1: 2 1 - 5 1 square degrees Importance 2: 5-2-12-4 square degrees Importance 3: 12-5-24-7 square degrees Importance 4: ^ 24-8 square degrees The second character grades the plage brilliance on a 3-level scale: f = faint, n = normal, and b = bright. Under this classification scheme, an Sf event is the smallest and 4b is the largest and brightest.
