Abstract:

A special study of the infrared heat lamps used in the Radiological and Biological Chemistry Division of the US Army Environmental Hygiene Agency to dry samples was conducted during the period September-October 1974. It was concluded that a personnel hazard from infrared radiation did not exist however, continuous viewing of the light reflected from the planchette exceeds current recommended limits.
