Non-Contact Specific Electromagnetic Energy Dosimeter
This invention is a method and apparatus for quantifying the electromagnetic energy absorbed by a surface. It uses the change of speed of an acoustic wave, caused by a temperature change in the surrounding medium, to quantify the electromagnetic energy absorbed at the surface. It can be used to characterize the biologically significant Specific Ab...
