A symposium on “Microwave field measurement, biological effects and application in nanoscience” is based on nanotechnology, biomedical, biophysical and environmental research issues. The ongoing issue in environmental science “electromagnetic pollution” has been chosen to explore the effect of Electromagnetic field (EMF) on biological systems. The EMF generated by cell phones and their towers are most frequent source which interfere with living system and causes adverse effect on their growth and development. Over three billions of people in more than 200 countries are daily exposed consciously to EMF. Thousands of them and many others are also exposed to EMFs (e.g., base stations, wireless phones, and wi-fi) of varying strength unintentionally and sometimes unconsciously. These fields are currently created mostly by mobile phone communication units and transmitting towers and are of major concern for the society because of their close proximity to human populations and sensitive somatic organs (e.g., brain (hippocampus, pineal gland), eyes, and testes). It needs to highlight the adverse affects of RF-EMW on biological systems by reviewing and continuing relevant studies and research to deeper understanding of this important health issue. Several studies represent these effects on reproductive pattern and brain system of male Wistar rat’s. Now the study demands to explore the
mechanism of field interaction with biological system. It also needs to measure the field emissions emitted by mobile phone and their towers. This is an important issue to protect the human being by unseen radiations emitted from various gadgets. Emphasis will also be laid to use the nanoparticle for such purposes to protect against hazardous effect. The proposed workshop will point out the Electromagnetic field radiation (especially mobile phone and microwave oven and many more appliances) effect in living beings and their solution by using nanoparticle application. It is therefore imperative that its implications must be fully explored and safety criteria be understood and implemented. Keeping this in view, it is planned to organize a two day symposium to discuss the issue in detail. A limited number of participants will be offered financial assistance for travel and local hospitality. Those interested, may send their request along with demand draft (DD) by January 20, 2011.
The topics to be covered will include but not limited to the following:-
1) Principle of Microwave radiations 2) Electromagnetic Fields-Bio-interactions and solution 3) Electromagnetic Fields and Environment 5) Radiofrequency Fields measurement and Dosimetry 6) Radiation hazards and safety Standards 7) Nanotechnology in wastewater tratement and (8) Nanoscience applications in Medical, biological and environmental issues
