As the applications and commercial uses of millimeter- and submillimeter-waves grow, we should take a more detailed look at the impact this frequency range has on biological systems. This paper examines one specific effect of low-level (10-50 times the MPE - maximum permissible exposure) 60 GHz CW RF power on cells – the opening of voltage sensitive cation channels.
