Paper Abstract

Microwave heating of the ground can enhance IR signatures of buried objects. The extent of the enhancement depends upon many parameters including wavelength, polarization, angle of incidence, and properties of the solid and the object. We show that angle of incidence and dielectric properties of the object are important, with some analytical and experimental results.
