In recent years, people are often exposed to electromagnetic waves due to the increase of electromagnetic devices such as satellite broadcasting systems, microwave ovens, induction ovens, police and army radar systems and medical imaging modalities. Particularly, the microwave sources used in industry have extreme effects on the employee health. Because of inaccurate using of devices such as induction ovens etc. or leakage from from devices, serious damages mayoccur in the brain, eye and skin tissue of the person using the device. In this study, the SAR value and temperature increase of tissues were computed by using multi layered tissue model at the frequency ranges of 915, 2450 MHz which are operating frequencies of industrial microwave sources. Analytical analysis were implemented using MATLAB Software tool. The results were compared with medical safety limitsand observed that they are under the limits.

Son yıllarda uydu yayın sistemleri, mikrodalga fırınlar, indüksiyon fırınları, polis ve ordu radar sistemleri, tıbbi görüntüleme gibi elektromanyetik cihazların kullanımının hızlı bir şekilde artmasıyla insanlar sürekli elektromanyetik dalgalara maruz kalmaktadır. Özellikle endüstride kullanılan yüksek güçlü mikrodalga kaynakları çalışan sağlığı üzerinde ciddi riskler oluşturmaktadır. İndüksiyon fırını ve buna benzer cihazların gerek hatalı kullanımı gerekse cihazlarda meydana gelen kaçaklar nedeniyle cihazı kullanan operatörlerin beyin, göz ve deri dokusunda ciddi hasarlar meydana gelebilmektedir. Bu çalışmada, endüstriyel mikrodalga kaynaklarının çalışma frekansları olan 915 ve 2450 MHz frekanslarında dokularda oluşan SAR değerleri ve sıcaklık artışı, çok katmanlı doku modeli kullanılarak hesaplanmıştır. Analitik analizler MATLAB programı yardımıyla ayrı ayrı yapılmıştır. Elde edilen sonuçlar, tıbbi güvenlik limit değerleriyle karşılaştırılmış ve limit değerlerin altında olduğu tespit edilmiştir.
