Abstract:

The purpose of this fourth edition is to provide a convenient compilation of information contained in the previous editions, including updated tables of published data, and to add new information. Chapter 2 contains information about how to use this handbook. Chapter new information. Chapter 2 contains information about how to use this handbook. Chapter 3 contains a discussion of the basics of electromagnetics for readers who are not physicists or engineers. Chapter 4 gives information about permittivities and contains an updated compilation of the summaries of published data from previous editions. Theoretical dosimetry is discussed in Chapter 5, including a brief discussion of methods used for dosimetric calculations, data for models of biological systems, and a tabulated summary of published work in theoretical dosimetry. The calculated dosimetric data in Chapter 6 contains, in addition to material from previous editions, some new calculated average-SAR data for spheroidal models at frequencies well beyond resonance. These calculations were made by spheroidal models at frequencies well beyond resonance. These calculations were made by a new technique called the iterative extended boundary conditions method IEBCM which was developed at the University of Utah after the third edition was published. Chapter 6 also contains some new calculated average-SAR data for spheroidal models irradiated by near fields. Chapter 7 contains information about experimental dosimetry, including a history of experimental dosimetry and a discussion of experimental techniques.
