[1] Microwaves are electromegnetic waves in the frequency spectrum ranging approximately from 1 GigaHertz to 30 GigaHertz. This corresponds to wavelengths from 30 cm to 1 cm.

Application of Microwaves:
(Yunfeng Zhao et al.)Microwave energy has great potential to improve the nuclear fuel process in terms of reduction in required processing time and temperature and increased recovery of elements. Microwave energy has significant advantages that are waiting to be explored.
