  • With increasing interest in millimeter-wave wireless communications, investigations on interactions between the human body and millimeter-wave devices are becoming important. [...] Key Result Simulation results show that about 34% to 42% of the incident power is reflected at the skin surface at 60 GHz. This paper shows that power density is not suitable to determine exposure compliance when millimeter wave devices are used very close to the body. A temperature-based technique for the evaluation of safety…Expand Abstract
