Update: “Efficient Dosimetry Procedures in GHz frequency range for 5G systems“
Abstract: Human exposure to mobile communications systems of fifth generation (5G) may lead to local temperature elevation at the body surface. According to IEEE 2019 and ICNIRP 2020 guidelines, this surface heating is quantified by absorbed power density (Sab) above transition frequency of 6GHz, while for the frequencies below 6GHz well-known quantity specific absorption rate (SAR) is used. Also, transmitted power density (TPD), an alternative dosimetric quantity and metric providing an estimation of skin temperature elevation for human exposure to EM fields at GHz frequency range is used.
The presentation first starts with analytical assessment of Sab and TPD for the case of Hertz dipole radiating in the presence of a lossy half-space. It will be followed by an analytical/numerical assessment of Sab in the homogeneous planar model of the human tissue due to radiation of horizontal dipole antenna of finite length in GHz frequency range. Next topic of interest is the calculation of incident power density (IPD) and related temperature increase in multilayer tissue model using different numerical methods based on the paper prepared by IEEE ICES working group and recently published in IEEE Access (November 2021 Issue).
Finally, stochastic-deterministic electromagnetic-thermal dosimetry in lower portion of GHz frequency range for anatomically based realistic multilayered model of the human head exposed to radiation from 5G communication systems will be presented. This part of the talk is based on the recently published paper in IEEE TEMC Special Issue on Progress in Environmental Electromagnetic Safety and Bimedical EMC (October 2021 Issue).
Some concluding remarks and guidelines for future work will be outlined.
