India’s Mobile Tower Radio Emission Norms

Telcos say that they are not allowed to expand tower network due to emission issues. Emissions from mobile towers are considered safe as it is non-ionising or “low energy” radiation, which cannot alter the human DNA. At most, it can only induce thermal effects by way of mild arming of the body. Only ionising or ..

2012 Physics Nobel for Haroche and Wineland

Serge Haroche of France and David Wineland of America together won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics for inventing methods to observe the bizarre properties of the quantum particles without disturbing them. This thing was previously thought unattainable. What is their invention? Their inventions are the methods by which quantum particles like atom, electron or ..

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)

Specific absorption rate is the measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) in electromagnetic field. The term is not restricted to the absorption of Electromagnetic Feild (EMF) and can be used in terms of absorption of other forms of energy by tissue, including ultrasound. In short SAR is the power absorbed ..
