Abstract : A microwave irradiation facility for multiple animals is described. A feature of the facility is that the natural radiation characteristics of the microwave field are utilized to ensure that each animal in the array receives an equal exposure. Also, the animals are separated sufficiently to ensure minimum interactions between animals due to microwave reflections. Cages of sufficient microwave transparency to minimize microwave reflections are incorporated in the facility. Overall, the facility provides equal exposure to all animals to within + or - 15 percent. (Author)
