Intercomparison of radiofrequency and microwave power flux density monitors
The document is the collection of the individual reports of the laboratories which participated in the intercomparison campaign. A synthesis report is published full size with the same title (EUR 12872 EN). This intercomparison has dealt with measurements of power flux densities in both radio (27 MHz) and microwave (2.45 GHz) frequency ranges, the power levels (1,10 and 50 mW/cm2) having been chosen to cover the range of the EEC directives regulating health protection. Two different types of broadband power flux monitors have been circulated among some of the EEC national laboratories: the first one having an E-type probe, the second an H-type probe. The results of the measurements have proven to be largely consistent, the agreement being generally within +/- 10%. It should, however, be stressed that the boundary conditions of the measurements were almost ideal and not typical of most field cases, as the structure of the calibration field was well known and as only the probes, not the cables and amplifiers, were exposed to the EM field.
