Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 14, 71-83, 2010
Abstract
An analysis has been presented by means of mode matching method for two microwave cavities of different sizes which are fed by TE10 waveguide and which are loaded with lossy dielectric slab type material. The accuracy of the results obtained is presented together with the comparison of the results which are obtained by HFSS numerical method. The optimization of the load location has been performed in order to maximize the electrical field on the material. The principle of this optimization is based on finding the existence of the positions in which S11 reflection coefficient is the lowest. When the feeding guide for the two different microwave cavities is entirely at the centre of the resonator, the reflection coefficient distribution change has been detected according to the different positions of the material in the oven, and then the lowest positions have been found out. The electric field changes in the detected positions have been recorded.
