Title: Calculating SAR in a Model of the Human Head Exposed to Mobile Phones Radiations at 900 and 1800 MHz
Author(s): Grigore Jeler               

Abstract: Since the 1990’s, the use of mobile phones has augmented worldwide generating a public concern as to whether frequent utilization of such devices is unsafe. This provoked EMF researchers to find suitable techniques of assessing radiation blueprint and exposure hazards if any. Most research groups focused on two techniques: experimental measurements and computations with numerical methods. Computation of the specific absorption rate (SAR) generated by cellular phones inside a model of the human head is presented in this paper. Two models of mobile phones were considered working at 900 and 1800 MHz bands according to the Global System for Mobile Communication.
