What Are Microwaves?

INTERNATIONAL MICROWAVE POWER INSTITUTE (IMPI)

The International Microwave Power Institute (IMPI) is an international organization that promotes the use of microwave and radio frequency (RF) power for non-communications applications. Most of this web site is aimed at professionals – scientists, engineers, technicians, and managers – to facilitate interchanging scientific, technical, and business information. However, this page is aimed at the general public, and has the purpose of explaining IMPI’s field and the science behind it.
