Abstract

AT present it is impossible to heat the deeper parts of a body of uniform transverse section and homogeneous structure to a higher temperature than its peripheral parts by means of high-frequency currents. With present-day methods the loss of oscillating energy by leakage and radiation is so great that probably less than 20 per cent of it is used for heating effects. Further, it is impossible to localise, to concentrate or even to direct the field more than very vaguely. Any object brought into the field deforms it in an uncontrollable way.
