## Abstract

Heating in an idealised polymer load in a novel open-ended variable frequency microwave oven is numerically simulated using a couple solver approach. The frequency-agile microwave oven bonding system (FAMOBS)is developed to meet rapid polymer curing requirements in microelectronics and optoelectronics manufacturing. The heating of and idealised polymer load has been investigated through numerical modelling. Assessment of the system comprises of simulation of electromagnetic fields and of temperature distribution within the load. Initial simulation results are presented and contrasted with experimental analysis of field distribution
