Summary

The aim is to clarify whether, in addition to the macroscopic and well-studied effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, there are also effects on the microscopic scale (< 1 mm³) that may appear, for example, as localized and time-limited heating, and thus could possibly result in specific effects at the level of molecules, membranes, cell components or cells.
