    Abstract:
    This paper explores biophysical effects of Poynting vector generators that use a circular electromagnetic energy flow in static E/H fields. These devices with circular or cylindrical emitters are popular in the research community as well as among hobbyists in studying influences of weak environmental stimuli on biological and electrochemical systems. Performed tests with liquids based on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and microbiological samples based on fermentation activity of yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae confirm biophysical effects of such electromagnetic systems. It is demonstrated that effects vary with the axial or radial positions of samples. Several atypical phenomena related to delayed electrochemical dynamics, mismatch with temperature curves, the appearance of 'paradoxical phases' and accumulation of the effect are shown. Developed devices are described in detail for further development as actuators in robotic systems, environmental and biophysical research or other applications.
