Modeling, Characterization and Control of Electromagnetic Wave Exposure chair

The Modeling, Characterization and Control of Electromagnetic Wave Exposure Chair was created in 2015. It brings together researchers from Télécom Paris and IMT Atlantique and is supported by the Agence Nationale des Fréquences (National Frequency Agency). This is an area with high societal impact.


The research work carried out will contribute to the characterization, analysis and modeling of electromagnetic wave exposure generated by telecommunications systems and networks. Research results will inform the standardization process in this field.
Societal aspects such as risk perception will be examined from several viewpoints, across several disciplines: technology, sociology, philosophy.


Research themes

  • Digital and experimental dosimetry
  • Statistical modeling of exposure, stochastic dosimetry
  • Influence of network technology and architecture on exposure
  • Standardization of exposure assessment models
  • Parameters governing the social perception of risk
