Abstract

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