This work describes the dosimetry of a two waveguide cell system designed to expose newborn mice to electromagnetic fields associated with wireless fidelity signals in the frequency band of 2.45 GHz. The dosimetric characterisation of the exposure system was performed both numerically and experimentally. Specific measures were adopted with regard to the increase in both weight and size of the biological target during the exposure period. The specific absorption rate (SAR, W kg-1)for1W of input power vs. weight curve was assessed. The curve evidenced an SAR pattern varying from <1Wkg-1 to >6Wkg-1 during the first 5 weeks of the life of mice, with a peak resonance phenomenon at a weight around 5 g. This curve was used to set the appropriate level of input power during experimental sessions to expose the growing mice to a defined and constant dose. © The Author 2010.
