    Abstract

    Microwave technology can help in the preparation of samples for microscopy in many different ways. This paper discusses the physics of microwaves. It gives the theoretical background to understand the practical procedures. Some peculiarities in the optics of microwaves are pointed out. Diffusion rates and chemical-reaction rates can be influenced considerably by the use of microwaves. A precise temperature control is essential in most histochemical procedures.
