On the mechanism of frequency-selective biological effects of EHF radiation and methods of their amplification

  • V. A. Shashlov


A proof is offered that there is an acoustic maser effect and acoustoelectric oscillations with a frequency 5·1010 Hz are generated in parts of biological membranes in which the energy release exceeds 10−9 W/μm2. It is concluded that interaction with these oscillations is the initial physical cause of EHF bioeffects. Methods are proposed for increasing the effectiveness of EHF therapy. The role of acoustoelectric membrane waters in vital processes is examined.
