  journal={2011 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium},
Frequency spectra of the magnetron of the Whirlpool - Talent microwave oven with a cuboidal glass object located in the centre of the turntable are measured with a spectrum analyser for different angular positions of the object. Then, electromagnetic software is used to calculate the amplitude of the reflection coefficient as a function of frequency in the frequency band between 2.4 GHz and 2.5 GHz, for different angular positions of the glass object. By comparing calculated resonant…
