Electromagnetic radiation is present everywhere in today's world. All the internet connections are becoming wireless. All telephonic conversations are getting mobile. Most of electronic devices today are wireless. In all wireless and mobile communications or devices, signals are sent from the transmitter and receiver receives those signals. So these signals are present everywhere. Sometimes they interfere with other electronic devices (there arises the issue of EMI/EMC) and it is a form of radiation for us (albeit most of the cases it is in negligible amount). In some rare cases, they do affect us. In this special issue we will try to elucidate some of these issues. Topics of general interest but not limited to those listed
- Mobile phone and health issues
- Mobile phone and human body interaction
- Specific absorption rate (SAR) calculation using Finite-Difference Time
- Domain (FDTD) method and SAR values of some commonly used mobile phones
- SAR reduction using Electromagnetic Band Gap structures
- SAR reduction using metamaterials
- Hyperthermia for curing cancer
- Electromagnetic interference (EMI)/ Electromagnetic compatibilty (EMC)
- Biological effects of microwave or electromagnetic radiation
- FDTD or Method of Moments (MoM) model of human head
- Any other topic related to bio-electromagnetics
