Distance between exposed object and exposure source
Aliquots of enzyme solution of identical volumes were placed into glass test tubes. One tube was wrapped in a single thin aluminium foil to screen RFradiation.
All experiments were carried out with the phone operating in receive mode being called from a remote phone. When the phone received a call, the emittedfield intensity increased in the first 10 s to a maximum of 12 V/m before decreasing to a lower "standby asymptotic" value of 1 V/m. To change the exposition time from 1 to 50 min, the samples were gradually exposed to cycles of 60 sec each.
