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.

About the editor

Gennadiy Churyumov

Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics (NURE)

Gennadiy I. Churyumov (M’96–SM’00) received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electronics Engineering and his Ph.D. degree from the Kharkiv Institute of Radio Electronics, Kharkiv, Ukraine, in 1974 and 1981, respectively, as well as the D.Sc. degree from the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kharkiv, Ukraine, in 1997. He is a professor at two universities: Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, and Harbin Institute of Technology. He is currently the Head of a Microwave & Optoelectronics Lab at the Department of Electronics Engineering at the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics. His general research interests lie in the area of 2-D and 3-D computer modeling of electron-wave processes in vacuum tubes (magnetrons and TWTs), simulation techniques of electromagnetic problems and nonlinear phenomena, as well as high-power microwaves, including electromagnetic compatibility and survivability. His current activity concentrates on the practical aspects of the application of microwave technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
