Tomsk scientists have developed a “perpetual” protective screen for a smartphone
It seems that in the long-term debate of scientists about the harmfulness / harmlessness of radiation from mobile phones, the point is put. The conclusion made by experts of the World Health Organization, says: the frequent use of a mobile phone can pose a threat to human health until the onset of cancer. According to experts, it can be put on a par with the exhaust of cars.
On such disappointing news the scientists of the radiophysical faculty of the Tomsk State University responded. They developed a protective screen that attenuates harmful microwave radiation.
Originally it was intended to use ferrites and carbon nanostructures as materials. However, later they had to be abandoned: the screens turned out to be cumbersome and impractical.
Ultimately, scientists created a screen based on a grid of the finest magnetic microwire with a diameter of 5 to 20 microns. The thickness of the screen is commensurable with a sheet of paper.
The production of the screen will be occupied by the enterprise “Radioprotection-T” at the radiophysical faculty of the university. The product was much cheaper than its predecessors, it has an almost unlimited lifespan and an affordable price of about 100 rubles.
