Title: Microwave probe applicator for physical and chemical processes

Abstract: A microwave heating system is disclosed for enhancing physical and chemical processes. The system includes a microwave source, an antenna having a cable, a receiver for receiving microwaves generated by the source, with the receiver being connected to a first end of the cable, and a transmitter for transmitting microwaves generated by the source, and with the transmitter being connected to an opposite end of the cable.
