Due to the increasing interest in millimeter waves (MMW) applications in medicine and telecommunications, the investigation of their potential biological effects is of utmost importance. Here we report results of the study of interaction between low-intensity radiation at 53.37 GHz and giant vesicles. Direct optical observations of vesicles subjected to irradiation enabled the monitoring in real time of the response of vesicles. Physical changes of vesicles, i.e. elongation, induced diffusion… CONTINUE READING
