7 Dielectric Properties of Organic Materials

Interest in the dielectric properties of various organic materials stems from the array of potential engineering applications these studies can support. Various food products have been studied to better understand microwave heating potential for food processing (Ohlsson and Risman 1978). The potential for RF and microwave drying of organic materials have also been explored (Chuah, et al. 1997, Cui, et al. 2005). Other studies have been undertaken with RF and microwave sensing systems in mind (Ulaby and Jedlicka 1984, van Dam 2005), while others have explored to potential for differentiating and detecting different organic materials in a mixed environment. These latter studies have wide interest for ...
