RF Energy Training Session

Nov 27th, 2019

In close cooperation with Techwatch, IMPI offers a beginner and advanced pre-conference training course on Wednesday 27 November. This training is open to both Benelux RF Conference attendees and non-attendees interested in gaining additional hands-on knowledge about high power, RF energy systems and components. Topics will cover RF basics and safety up to instrumentation, relevant semiconductor technologies, a deep dive into amplifiers and system aspects. See below for more details. These courses will be presented by the RF Energy section of IMPI and take place at the Novio Tech Campus Nijmegen.

IMPI Webinar: A Technical Overview of Applicators for Microwave Heating

Nov 19th, 2019

The term “applicator” in the context of microwave heating applies to a device used to expose microwave energy to a material to be heated in a controlled manner. Microwave applicators, also referred to as chambers or cavities, can have any of several different configurations of varying shape and size as best suited for a particular purpose. This webinar covers the basic applicator types, technical characteristics that distinguish them and their variations from others, and practical considerations for their selection for common heating processes.

IMPI Webinar: Impedance Matching in High-Power Microwave Applications

Oct 24th, 2019

Impedance matching is a technique for maximizing the power delivered from a microwave generator to a load – an object of interest to be processed by the microwaves.

The webinar will introduce the concept of impedance matching, provide the elementary theory behind it, and illustrate its importance in high-power microwave engineering. We will discuss the specifics of impedance matching in high-power industrial applications in contrast to techniques typically employed in communications. We will examine basic circuit elements and components suitable for high-power impedance matching. The main attention of the webinar will be devoted to automatic impedance matching of time-varying loads under difficult signal conditions, a very common scenario in magnetron-powered industrial plants.
