Abstract
After reviewing the possible mechanisms leading to the biological responses provoked by non-ioni- zing radiation, a new dose unit for application in phototherapy, the nior, is introduced. Then the results of simulation studies to clear up some misunderstandings concerning the interaction of non- ionizing radiation with living materials is discussed. This is followed by a review of those parame- ters of both the non-ionizing radiation and the tissue which have to be considered if a versatile dosimeter for non-ionizing optical radiation is to be developed.
