“Human exposure to electromagnetic fields from wireless communication devices: from 1G to 5G” por Dr. Vikass Monebhurrun
Na próxima quinta-feira, dia 01 de outubro às 09h00
The aim of the talk is to provide a review of the current state of the art on human exposure to electromagnetic fields from wireless communication devices present in our daily environment. The rationale of the guidelines and standard for limiting human exposure to electromagnetic fields, the limits adopted by the different countries around the world as well as the international standardization activities will be discussed.
Dr. Monebhurrun actively participated in French National Research Programs on human exposure to electromagnetic fields since 1998. He is technical contributor to several international standardization committees on numerical and experimental dosimetry, and he provides expertise to national and international regulatory bodies on this topic.

The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), a body recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO), established the guidelines for limiting human exposure to electromagnetic fields in 191998. Based on the review of the scientific literature available at that time, the guidelines provide protection against the known adverse health effects of electromagnetic fields. The limits recommended by ICNIRP have been adopted in Europe and many countries around the world. IEEE has also developed and maintains a standard for the safety levels with respect to human exposure to electromagnetic fields. To further address the problem of possible health effects due to the exposure to electromagnetic fields, extensive research has been undertaken by international laboratories in the fields of biology, dosimetry and epidemiology during the past decades. The biological effects of electromagnetic fields are usually well-known and scientifically recognized, but the adverse health effects on human beings are frequently debated. Following the review of epidemiological studies that showed a possible correlation between the extensive use of mobile phones and an increased risk for glioma, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a specialized agency for the WHO, classified exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possibility carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B) in 2011. More recently, ICNIRP and IEEE have updated the guidelines and standard for limiting exposure to electromagnetic fields.
Vikass Monebhurrun received the PhD from Université Pierre & Marie Curie, France, in 1997, and the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches from Université Paris-Sud, France, in 2010. He is author/co-author of more than hundred peer-reviewed conference and journal papers and book chapters. He holds three international patents on antennas for mobile communications. He currently serves as Associate-Editor of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Magazine and Transactions, and Editor of the IoP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering. He is chairing the IEEE AP-S Antennas and Propagation Standards Committee since 2015 and the IEC/IEEE 62704-3 Standard Committee since 2010. He is the founder of the IEEE RADIO international conference for which he served as General Chair for all the seven editions since 2012. He was recipient of the Union Radio Scientifique Internationale Young Scientist Award in 1996, the International Electrotechnical Commission 1906 Award in 2018, and the IEEE Standards Association International Award in 2019.
