A special curtain invented by Istanbul Technical University's (ITU) Professor Cevdet Isik absorbs electromagnetic waves spread by base stations, wireless internet modems, wireless radios and mobile phones.
The mass production of the special curtain began in north-western province of Bursa after the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) approved the curtain's ability to absorb electromagnetic waves.
Speaking to the AA on Thursday, Dr. Cevdet Isik said that he worked for a year in order to develop the special curtain using special fibers.
Dr. Isik said that his curtain was not much different from other curtains in appearance.
My curtain received approval from TUBITAK. The special curtain absorbs electromagnetic waves and especially protects children from such waves, Dr. Isik said.
The special curtain is under patent protection, Dr. Isik also said.
The curtain will be introduced to the Turkish market in the next several months.
