Abstract : A microwave calorimeter is disclosed for substantially measuring the total microwave energy in an applied microwave pulse. The microwave calorimeter includes: a housing having a highly reflective interior surface, a microwave absorbing device disposed in the housing for substantially absorbing microwave energy transmitted into the housing and for producing a thermal response proportional to the amount of microwave energy being absorbed, and a measurement device responsive to the thermal response for determining the amount of microwave energy being absorbed by the microwave absorbing device.
