Abstract : Knowledge of the dielectric properties of a material is essential for a proper design of an efficient applicator. The paper discusses the interaction of EM waves with a dielectric material. The analytical solution to the problem of a line source illuminating a cylinder is discussed. This then leads to a description of the technique of designing a new type of applicator for heating a large quantity of dielectric material. Experimental results are presented and discussed. The new applicator is capable of operating in a batch or continuous mode.
