About the book
In the last few decades, using electromagnetic energy has become widespread and has accomplished significant success in various areas of human activity. Based on numerous results of research in the field of microwave heating of various materials and mediums, carried out at the macrolevel, considerable attention is paid by researchers and developers to the study of how the electromagnetic field acts and the influence of thermal effects on the internal structure of matter and the appearance of new qualitative and quantitative changes at the microlevel.
In the book the theory and practice of microwave heating are discussed. The intended scope covers the results of recent research related to the generation, transmission and reception of microwave energy, its application in the field of organic and inorganic chemistry, physics of plasma processes, industrial microwave drying and sintering, as well as in medicine for therapeutic effects on internal organs and tissues of the human body and microbiology. Both theoretical and experimental studies are anticipated.
The book aims to be of interest not only for specialists in the field of theory and practice of microwave heating but also for readers of non-specialists in the field of microwave technology and those who want to study in general terms the problem of interaction of the electromagnetic field with objects of living and nonliving nature.
