Features

  • Contains updated sections on theoretical interaction models, including separate sections on free radical interactions and resonance phenomena
  • Updates and expands sections on computational dosimetric modeling and RF exposure assessment
  • Adds a chapter on magnetic properties of materials to complement the one on dielectric properties
  • Includes a significant chapter on noise and thresholds of detection of fields by biological systems
  • Summary

    Bioengineering and Biophysical Aspects of Electromagnetic Fields primarily contains discussions on the physics, engineering, and chemical aspects of electromagnetic (EM) fields at both the molecular level and larger scales, and investigates their interactions with biological systems.

    The first volume of the bestselling and newly updated Handbook of Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields, Third Edition, this book adds material describing recent theoretical developments, as well as new data on material properties and interactions with weak and strong static magnetic fields. Newly separated and expanded chapters describe the external and internal electromagnetic environments of organisms and recent developments in the use of RF fields for imaging.

    Bioengineering and Biophysical Aspects of Electromagnetic Fields provides an accessible overview of the current understanding on the scientific underpinnings of these interactions, as well as a partial introduction to experiments on the interactions themselves.
