SEAWave contribution to BioEM2023

BioEM2023 (Oxford, UK, has been completed. SEAWave has participated with several oral and poster presentations.

The stage opened with the work “Traceable Absorbed Power Density Assessment System in the 28 GHz Band” (authors: Ninad Chitnis, Fariba Karimi, Arya Fallahi, Sven Kühn, and Niels Kuster) presented by Ninad Chitnis, from the WP4 of SEAWave.

Dr Myles Capstick from IT’IS Fountation (CH) presented the design of the animal exposure setup, which will be installed at ENEA (Rome, IT) in the near future (“5G mm-wave mouse exposure system based on reverberation chambers”, Myles Capstick, Beyhan Kochali, Isaac Alonso Marin, Niels Kuster).

A flash but very interesting presentation of the first results within WP10 (Risk Communication) of SEAWave was given by Sarah Link from IU Internationale Hochschule (Erfurt, DE). Sarah presented her poster entitled “How much am I exposed? Exploring public perceptions of EMF exposure from mobile Communication technology and 5G” (authors: Sarah Link, Marie Eggeling, Ferdinand Abacioglu, Christoph Böhmert). This poster was awarded the 1st Student Poster Award in Sarah Link. Well done Sarah!

During the poster session Dr Serge Bories from CEA (Grenoble, FR) presented the “Performance Evaluation of DEVIN at a Low Sampling Frequency” (authors: Taghrid Mazloum, Serge Bories, David Dassonville).

A joint publication from IT’IS, SPEAG, ZMT and ETH was presented by Dr. Myles Capstick titled “A 5G FR2 Human Skin Exposure System Implementing Subject Self Control Paradigms” (authors: Dr Myles Capstick, Dr Cosimo Fortunato, Dr Erdem Ofli, Mr Beyhan Kochali3, Mr Isaac Alonso Marin, Prof Niels Kuster) which detailed the development of a 5G millimeter wave exposure system at 27.5 GHz for human provocation experiments.

Another SEAWave contribution to the BioEM2023 conference came from the leader of WP1, Prof Joe Wiart (Telecom Paris – IP Paris, FR), who presented the results of the first interlaboratory measurement campaign that took place in Thessaloniki (GR) in December 2022 in the poster “Comparison of Measurement Systems on Conducting RF-EMF Drive Test Campaign in Greek Urban and Suburban environments” (authors: S. Wang, W. Ben Chikha, Y. Zhang, J. Liu, M. Christopoulou, E. Karabetsos, A. Manassas, S. Iakovidis, C. Apostolidis, D. Babas, T. Samaras, J. Wiart).

The final SEAWave contribution to BioEM2023 came from a joint team effort by AUTH and ENEA presented by Prof. Theodoros Samaras with the title “Electromagnetic macro-dosimetry of murine skin at millimeter waves”, (authors: Serafeim Iakovidis, Dr. Emiliano Fratini, Dr. Simona Leonardi, Dr. Caterina Merla, Dr. Rosanna Pinto, Dr. Simonetta Pazzaglia, Dr. Mariateresa Mancuso, Prof Theodoros Samaras).
