Health & Exposure

Much has been said in the press about the effects of electromagnetic radiation on people, in particular about the use of mobile phones and the placement of masts. However, the arguments also extend to medical tools such as MRI, to RF and Microwave industrial processing, and the ever-increasing number of sources that are present in our environment such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).

At NPL we research methods to demonstrate compliance with exposure limits and relevant legislation.
