Description

Abstract:

The dramatic increase in man-made radio frequency (RF) fields in the environment during the last few decades has led to public health concerns in many parts of the world. Specifically, questions have been raised on the safety of exposure to RF energy emitted from radar, television and radio communication systems, microwave ovens, video display terminals, and most recently, mobile telephones and base stations, Wi-Fi, LTE, and 5G. Wearable RF gadgets are prevailing. Wireless power transmission is a newer subject, which can involve high intensity exposures. The IEEE EMF database now has more than 7000 original, peer-reviewed papers useful for public health risk assessment of RF exposure. Even there has been 70 years of research, and WHO indicated that scientific knowledge in this area is now more extensive than for most chemicals and current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields, controversy on RF safety continues. Both biological and engineering complexities make the validity of many studies questionable. In this presentation, emphasis will be on the new IEEE C95.1 exposure standard, which is scheduled for publication in October 2019. New exposure limits for above 6 GHz frequencies used for 5G communication will be discussed.

Speaker:

Dr. Chung-Kwang (C-K.) Chou is the Chairman of Technical Committee 95 of the IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety, responsible for exposure standards from 0 to 300 GHz (2006- ), Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (2016- ) and on the Advisory Panel of Non-Ionizing Radiation of the NCRP (2016- ). Dr. Chou has authored over 200 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters and received the highest honor d'Arsonval Medal from the Bioelectromagnetics Society in 2006. He was elected as IEEE Fellow in 1989, and also a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering in 1996 and the Electromagnetic Academy in 2007.
