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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
