Abstract
A system has been constructed for measuring radiofrequency absorption in the human body resulting from exposure to high-frequency (HF) electromagnetic radiation. Operating frequencies are currently limited due to the 3 to 20-MHz range due to the occurrence of the first cell resonance, associated with the TE sub 01 mode, at 20.7 MHz. The first set of human whole-body absorption results is presented for three subjects exposed in free space to 11 mu w square cm at 18.5 MHz in six different body orientations with respect to the TEM wave. The measured absorption rates for the two principal E orientations are larger than the published predictions by a factor of 2 to 3.
