It is well known that water absorbs microwave energy very efficiently due to its permanent molecular dipole which has large dielectric losses in the GHz frequency range.

To this end we are investigating the design of integrated microfluidic devices employed to rapidly and precisely heat water by means of near-field microwave dielectric heating.
