Electromagnetic Field Pollution Level Measurement for Mobile Phone Networks at Cihan University-Erbil

Keywords: Antenna, electromagnetic fields pollution, mobile network, specific absorption rate limit, Specific absorption rate


The health effects by impact of radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMF) have become of increasing concern. We conducted a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) study and measurements of wireless and mobile phone networks to evaluate the hazard of RF radiation limit. Our measurements have been carried out at different locations on the campus of Cihan University – Erbil. The RF strength level measurement of a base station on site was done by using spectrum analyzer with a dipole antenna and Electro Magnetic Field detector (EMF) application in the handsets for mobile networks, then comparing our measurements with the international slandered SAR’s levels.
