EM Wave Effects upon the Human Body Using UWB Antennas

Bader Saadi Fadhel and Muhammad Ramlee Kamarudin
Abstract— This paper presents a calculation of Electro Magnetic Wave and its effects on a part of the human body by using a Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) code. The analysis is on the electromagnetic field penetration and a thermal effect of radiofrequency signal in structures, which represent estimates of human biological tissue. A model of human hand was created by using CST Microwave Studio and an irradiation by microwaves of frequency range used by UWB antenna of (3.1 – 10.6GHz) was simulated. The thermal distribution in the model was calculated and numerical estimates of the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) inside the body tissue were compared for different frequencies and positions.

Index Terms— Biological tissue, CST microwave studio, specific absorption rate (SAR), ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna.
