  author={Imtiaz Nasim and Seungmo Kim},
Out of the very few studies that paid proper attention to the harmful health impacts in millimeter-wave (mmW) communications, most of them are concerned about uplink cases due to closer contact with the human body. Our recent study revealed that even the human exposure to radio frequency (RF) fields in downlink mmW technology is not very minimum to be ignored. There were a few RF exposure mitigation techniques for uplinks, but the downlink scenario is hardly paid any attention. However, this… 


Human Exposure to RF Fields in 5G Downlink
While cellular communications in millimeter wave (mmW) bands have been attracting significant research interest, their potential harmful impacts on human health are not as significantly studied.
The human body and millimeter-wave wireless communication systems: Interactions and implications
It is shown that power density is not suitable to determine exposure compliance when millimeter wave devices are used very close to the body and a temperature-based technique for the evaluation of safety compliance is proposed.
Hybrid precoding for millimeter wave systems with a constraint on user electromagnetic radiation exposure
A baseband model for SAR-aware wireless communication and a strategy for optimal hybrid precoding in millimeter wave systems with SAR constraints are presented.

Simulation results show that the proposed EM emission reduction scheme for the uplink of OFDM wireless systems with base station coordination reduces EM emission by over 85% and 99% when compared with a no frequency reuse scheme and an energy efficiency based scheme, respectively.
A performance comparison of in-band full duplex and dynamic TDD for 5G indoor wireless networks
Numerical results indicate that for highly utilized wireless networks, in-band full duplex should be combined with interference cancellation and beamforming in order to achieve a performance gain over traditional duplexing schemes.
