Effects of metallic spectacles on SAR when using communications enabled PDAs in front of the face

This paper presents simulated and measured results of a study examining the effects of metallic spectacles on the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) inside a modified Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin (SAM) head when using various RF sources. We consider dipole sources resonating at 900MHz and 1800MHz as well as three communications enabled PDAs operating in the GSM900 band.
