Design and setup of exposure system for culture studies
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this repost the design of an exposure system for culture studies is presented. The apparatus can expose culture plates to a magnetic field and microwave radiation. The magnetic field is created using a pair of Helmholtz colis which can generate a field with frequencies between 0 and 100 [Hz] and with field strengths between 0 and 8 [Gauss]. Microwaves with frequencies between 1.7 and 1.9 [GHz] at power levels between 0 and 8 [W] are directed at the culture plate using a R-band rectangular waveguide. The setup includes an IR- camera used to observe the temperature distribution of the exposed medium.Trial exposures of Osteoblasts does not show any statistically viable results.
