A disclosed microwave heating apparatus includes a casing part configured to accommodate an object to be heated; a microwave generator configured to generate a microwave; an electromagnetic wave generator configured to generate an electromagnetic wave whose frequency is different from that of the microwave; an electromagnetic wave sensor configured to measure power of the electromagnetic wave, the power of the electromagnetic wave being measured after the electromagnetic wave incident on the casing part from the electromagnetic wave generator has passed through the object to be heated; and a controller configured to control, based on the power measured in the electromagnetic wave sensor, the microwave generator to generate the microwave.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
