Domestic microwave ovens available today have large microwave power output of about 400 - 700 watts, and this reduces their effectiveness when used for laboratory use with small power requirements. Besides this, the microwave field distribution is not of a uniform pattern inside the oven cavity. This thesis presents the analysis and redesin of domestic microwave ovens for use in laboratories to heat thin, small samples of waste water analysis with controllable microwave power output together with uniform field distribution.
