Abstract
For the first time a personal Exposimeter (PE) is presented for radiation assessment in the 60-GHz band. Numerical simulations are used to design the PE and its uncertainty is assessed using on-body calibration measurements at 61 GHz. The PE consisting of three nodes (antennas) with vertical-horizontal-horizontal (VHH) polarization has a 50% prediction interval of 1.3 dB which is 3.1 dB lower than a single node experiment. The proposed PE has a 19.7 dB smaller uncertainty compared to the currently available exposimeters at lower frequencies. A 95 % confidence interval of 6.6 dB is measured on the response of the proposed PE.
