Notre Dame Wireless Institute: Building a Better Phone
Notre Dame Wireless Institute: Building a Better Phone
January 25, 2016

Every time an individual uses a cell phone, he absorbs some electromagnetic radiation. Each phone must comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s limits on the specific absorption rate of radiation that is considered safe for the body. The key, according to Notre Dame engineers, is being creative in how a phone’s technology can work within these limits.
