Electromagnetic environment is defined by total electromagnetic phenomena existing at a location. When we use an electric device or mobile phone for example, it generates an electromagnetic field in the surrounding space, which changes the electromagnetic environment. On the other hand, electronic appliances, radio receivers, and human bodies could also be affected by the surrounding electromagnetic environment. Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory performs R&D and services for establishing electromagnetic environment where we can enjoy safe and reliable use of various radio wave applications.
In order to prevent electromagnetic environmental issues that are potentially caused by the widespread of smart grid systems and expansion of radio frequency use, our research area covers precise measurement techniques of electromagnetic waves in terahertz band, wideband electromagnetic disturbance measurement method, and evaluation method of electromagnetic interference effects on information and communication systems/equipment. We are actively contributing to international and national standardization activities on EMC.
When considering the safety of radio frequency radiation exposure to the human body, it is necessary to evaluate the electromagnetic absorbed dose (Specific Absorption Rate or SAR) in the human body accurately. NICT has developed computational models of human anatomy and a database with electrical properties of biological tissues, and conducts detailed electromagnetic dosimetry.
