Abstract : Improved field measurements for Styrofoam and Plexiglas cages and a microwave exposure array previously designed and constructed at AFRRI are described. A new miniature isotropic electric field probe designed by the Bureau of Radiological Health was used. The new measurements demonstrated the effectiveness of the cages for microwave research. The microwave exposure array was shown to provide equal average power density to all exposed animals to within + or - 5 percent. (Author)
