History of the Genesis and Development of the Study of Effects of Low Energy Electromagnetic Fields

  • Herman P. Schwan
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 49)


Any review of this topic should include consideration of the development of the field of nonionizing radiation biohazard research in the broader context of the development of the biophysical interdisciplinary sciences. Hence I shall structure my lecture in three parts:
  1. 1.

    The development of Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics.

  2. 2.

    History of the nonionizing radiation field before World War 2.

  3. 3.

    History after World War 2.
