Resumen

This paper studies the internal electric field distribution in human erythrocytes exposed to MW radiation. For this purpose, an erythrocyte cell model is exposed to linearly polarized electromagnetic (EM) plane waves of frequency 900 MHz and the electric field within the cell is calculated by using a finite element (FE) technique with adaptive meshing. The results obtained show the dependence of the induced electric field distribution on the main modelling parameters, i.e., the electrical properties (permittivity and conductivity) of the membrane and cytoplasm and the orientation of the cell with respect to the applied field. It is found that for certain orientations, the field amplification within the membrane of the erythrocyte shape cell can be higher than the one observed in an equivalent simple spheroidal geometry cell, commonly used in bioelectromagnetism. The present work shows that a better insight of the interaction of electromagnetic fields with basic biological structures is obtained when the most possible realistic cell shape is used.
