Abstract

The increasing application of non-ionizing radiations, such as radio- and microwaves, ultrasound, lasers and ultraviolet radiation, for example, calls more and more attention with regard to the dangers associated with their use. For this purpose, studies are being performed on an increasing scale; these correlate energy fluxes and/or absorption and temperature increases with biological effects. Techniques are being developed which, similar to the dosimetric methods in the field of ionizing radiation, allow exposure limits to be controlled. In some instances solid state detectors are utilized. An attempt is made to summarize worldwide efforts to measure non-ionizing radiation quantitatively and to develop dosimetric methods.
