Aim of study (acc. to author)
up to 300 min
electric field strength
718 V/m - 1310 V/m
Main outcome of study (acc. to author)
When comparing the inactivation rate with that obtained by
exposure to heat alone, measurable differences were found. These differences are a clear indication of a nonthermal effect caused by microwave exposure.
