Foundations and Industrial Applications of Microwaves and Radio Frequency Fields Physical and Chemical Processes G. Roussy Université de Nancy 1, France J. A. Pearce University of Texas at Austin, USA This book presents microwave and radio frequency techniques from the point of view of industrial applications, with special attention to electromagnetic energy and material interaction at the microscopic level. Starting with a review of the complete set of macroscopic governing equations?including conduction processes?it then addresses microscopic interaction effects, describing many results from spectroscopic studies. Finally, industrial applications, including the emerging new field of microwave catalysis, are addressed. The technology presented is applied in the mineral, textile, paper, ceramic, chemical and last, but not least, the food industry.
