A Simple Demonstration for Exploring the Radio Waves Generated by a Mobile Phone
Hare, Jonathan
Physics Education, v45 n5 p481-486 Sep 2010
Described is a simple low cost home-made device that converts the radio wave energy from a mobile phone signal into electricity for lighting an LED. No battery or complex circuitry is required. The device can form the basis of a range of interesting experiments on the physics and technology of mobile phones. (Contains 5 figures.)
