This paper presents a numerical analysis of the specific absorption rate in SAM phantom exposed to electromagnetic field. A two set dipole antenna operating with 1800MHz and 2600MHz were placed parallel to the z-axis and rotated in clockwise from 0o (vertical) to 180o in steps of 30o to investigate the effect of frequency and polarization. The maximum average of 1gram and 10gram of tissue have been presented to show the effect of SAR in SAM phantom model. A comparison of the mass average SAR in…
