Abstract : This report describes work in four areas: 1. Continuing studies of the microwave absorption characteristics of DNA, including further investigation of the open-probe technique as a means for making such measurements. 2. Studies of the effect of microwaves on plasmid DNA. 3. Ultrasonic absorption properties of biomaterials. 4. An investigation of cell shape deformation in strong AC electric fields. Keywords: Dielectrometry ultrasonic absorption; Exposure(Physiology); Response(Biology).
