Nanoparticle Heating Studies – The Need for Complete Assessment of Frequency Response in Induction Heating

Nanoparticle Heating Studies – The Need for Complete Assessment of Frequency Response in Induction Heating

Studies of nanoparticle induction heating could be failing to capture vital information, primarily due to a lack of capability in the basic induction heaters that they are using. These conventional induction heaters are designed specifically to heat metal components – this means that they have a very limited frequency range. [More]
