Focussing on engineering aspects of RF/Microwave interaction with biological tissues
This book discusses the advancement in bio-electromagnetics pertaining to this important issue of electromagentic field-bio interaction vis-a-vis the emission of electromagnetic radiations from mobile phones and their biological fallout.
Divided into six chapters, it discusses basic issues in Electromagnetic Field-Biointeraction, dosimetery, instrumentation, and methods of measurement of specific absorption rate, criteria and magnitude of safe exposure and measurements of field in an open (unobstructed) environment.
Table of Contents

Jitendra Behari got his Ph. D in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi in 1971. There after joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering, IIT & AIIMS in 1973, and later continued career in the School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, where he was also the Dean of the school. He retired as Professor from JNU in 2012. He was Conferred Honorary D. Sc. In Bioelectromagnetics (Ansted University, UK at Penang, Malaysia, August 2001).
During academic pursuits at JNU he was selected as a Fulbright Fellow and Adjunct Faculty at Michigan State University; DAAD Fellow; a Fellow of Japanese Association of Cultivation Sciences; and British Council. He has also been a Career Awardee (UGC), Fellow of Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers, ultrasonic Society of India and a Senior Member of IEEE. was also a member of Commission K of International Union of Radio Sciences (URSI); and IEEE Engineering in medicine and Biology Society and Electromagnetics Academy (USA); Indian Science Congress Association and had been on Executive Bodies of Biomedical Engineering Society of India, IEEE, ED, MTT Chapter and Indian Society of Biomechanics. He has been a past Chairman of IEEE ED MTT Chapter and Member Executive of Indian Physics Association and Indian Vacuum Society.
Dr Behari founded Microwave Applications Society of India and have been serving it as Secretary. The society brings out regularly Newsletter and organized several Workshops / Symposia / Conferences on annual basis. His areas of research included microwave soil moisture measurements and modeling, waste water treatment with the use of nanoparticles, has published >100 original research publications, written several books and obtained 4patentss and have developed several instruments e.g. bone stimulator for fracture heeling, rodent repellar etc. He has been a referee for various national / international journals and funding agencies.
