|Abstract:||In this paper the absorption by the human body of electromagnetic (EM) radiation generated by a Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) from a modern mobile phone is investigated through the evaluation of the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in head, brain and hand regions using Sim4Life (S4L) and a realistic anatomical model. Several scenarios were evaluated, by varying the distance between the antenna and the head, the feeder position and the orientation of the antenna. The effect of the presence of the hand was also studied and, finally, different communication bands were considered. The main results show that the presence of the hand is determinant to reduce SAR on head and brain, while bottom orientations of the antenna reduce the SAR on the brain, but increase the SAR in other tissues. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2018.|
