On Specific Absorption Rates in the Human Mucous Membrane with Conducting Spectacles at Mobile Phone Frequencies by FDTD Simulation

W.G. Whittow and R.M. Edwards (UK)


FDTD, SAR, metallic spectacles, mucous membrane


An anatomically correct FDTD head phantom was used to study SAR levels in the mucous membrane found in the lining of the nose, sinuses and ears. The membrane is found to absorb significant levels of energy when illuminated by a plane wave from the front of the head. The frequency range considered is 0.8 to 2.6GHz. Metallic spectacles were found to significantly change the SAR in the eyes and mucous membrane.
