Abstract:

A research program at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research WRAIR is concerned with the mechanism by which microwave exposure produces cataracts in the eye lens. Science Applications, Inc. SAI is supporting WRAIR personnel in system design, equipment assembly, and operation of experiments to measure the physical effects in the eye lens as it is subjected to microwave pulses of varying peak power levels. This report describes an ongoing project using a laser interferometer and rat eye lens in vitro. The experiment is presently in the data collection phase, with no firm conclusions yet drawn.
