Hazardous radiation from “safe” devices: scientists talk about factors that enhance human exposure

Experts from France told RUDN students that the effect of electromagnetic radiation on human organism from such "safe" devices as mobile phones or solar panels can be amplified many times depending on geological conditions and environmental conditions.

November 12, at the Faculty of Ecology, a lecture was given by Alexander Rusanov, graduate of the Faculty of Engineering at RUDN University (1979), and Dr. Pascal Minho, specializing in environmental medicine. They spoke about the effects of non-ionizing radiation on the body. These are primarily electromagnetic waves, including super-weak ones coming from computers, mobile phones, wind generators, solar panels and other devices that have entered our lives. Currently, it is believed that the level of electromagnetic radiation from them is low and does not pose a health hazard if the rules of use are observed. But, as Dr. Minho said, adverse environmental conditions can provoke hypersensitivity to electromagnetic waves, so using a regular mobile phone is dangerous.

Alexander Rusanov claims that geological conditions also influence sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation - for example, being in a geological fault, which is confirmed by the large number of data from livestock farms in Europe, where he conducts research. Moreover, “when the anthropogenic load on the Earth exceeds the possibilities of regeneration, changes in the physical, chemical and other properties of the territories occur. Therefore, the installation of mobile communications base stations grounding, wind generators, solar systems that generate electricity in fault zones can cause new, previously unknown non-electromagnetic radiation spreading along fault zones over long distances."

RUDN University chemist creates carbon “flower” for zinc-ion supercapacitors

A RUDN University chemist has created an unusual carbon structure that can be used as a cathode in zinc-ion supercapacitors. The batteries obtained on its basis have a higher capacity and energy density than existing analogues.

RUDN scientists have shown how much taking into account the real shape of the satellite affects the probability of collision of two space objects

RUDN scientists have clarified the model for calculating the probability that space objects may encounter. Classical models do not take into account the real shape and orientation of objects -it seemed that this increases the calculated probability several times. The results are published in the journal Cosmic Research.
