Abstract: The objective of this effort has been to investigate the relationship between polymer structure and microwave absorptivity. Dielectric loss factor, E " , loss tangent, tan 6, and oscillator strength, ( e S -EJ, were used to evaluate potential material processability under applied microwave radiation. Numerous polymeric materials varying in chemical and physical structures were irradiated in a low power (< lOOW) electric field at 2.45 GHz. Electromagnetic radiation was applied as either traveling or resonant w…
