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