Irradiation of prolate spheroidal models of biological models by the near fields of electrically small apertures is analyzed. The solution procedure involves the replacement of the aperture source by an equivalent configuration of electric and magnetic dipoles. The specific absorption rate (SAR) induced in the irradiated object is then calculated using the extended boundary condition method (EBCM). Numerical results are presented for the exposure case where the incident electric field at the spheroid location is parallel to the major axis of the model. This polarization is associated with the maximum low-frequency absorption in biological models and, hence, is the most important polarization case in microwave dosimetry.
