The Absorption and Reradiation of Radio Waves by Oxygen and Water Vapor in the Atmosphere
This is a brief review paper on the interaction of radio waves with oxygen and water vapor in the atmosphere. It is the first of a series of mini-reviews sponsored by the Wave Propagation Standards Committee of IEEE and is intended primarily for those persons who have not had occasion to study extensively in the subject.

- "For instance, shifting the frequency from 70/80 to 60 GHz decreases the operating range from 3 km to 400 m . This decrease is related to the 16 dB/km peak of oxygen-induced absorption around 60 GHz   that makes this frequency range extremely attractive for secured local communications, particularly in indoor environments, guaranteeing low interference with other wireless services and devices, as well as with adjacent network cells. At the same time, because of this resonance absorption, human body has never been exposed to 57–64 GHz radiations in the natural environmental conditions. "

ABSTRACT: The biocompatibility of millimeter-wave devices and systems is an important issue due to the wide number of emerging body-centric wireless applications at millimeter waves. This review article provides the state of knowledge in this field and mainly focuses on recent results and advances related to the different aspects of millimeter-wave interactions with the human body. Electromagnetic, thermal, and biological aspects are considered and analyzed for exposures in the 30-100 GHz range with a particular emphasis on the 60-GHz band. Recently introduced dosimetric techniques and specific instrumentation for bioelectromagnetic laboratory studies are also presented. Finally, future trends are discussed.
