Metal Frame Spectacles, Changes of SAR, Simulation of frontal face
The relationship between speci¯c absorption rate (SAR) and antenna gain inside the head due to the metal-frame spectacles was investigated. The radio frequency (RF) energy source considered
is the smartphone used in the frontal face. A computer simulation
using CST Microwave Studio 2012 was used for the investigation.
Two sets of dipole antennas operated at 900MHz and 1800MHz for
GSM applications, were used as representative radiation sources from a mobile phone. Parametric studies were conducted to determine the optimum length of the metal rod, and the length was used to study the possibility of RF irradiation of the metal spectacles model. Then, the spectacles model was used as an analysis tool to study the interaction between gain and SAR in the head. The radiation pattern was plotted to identify the causes of the interactions. The gain decreased when the energy source was very close to the spectacles and SAR increased enormously.
