In this work we consider stability of recovery of the conductivity and attenuation coefficients of the stationary Maxwell and Schrödinger equations from a complete set of (Cauchy) boundary data. By using complex geometrical optics solutions we derive some bounds which can be viewed as an evidence of increasing stability in these inverse problems when the frequency is growing.
