Which band of frequencies are microwave allocated?

Which band of frequencies are microwave allocated?

Microwave ovens operate at 2495 or 2450 MHz in the ISM band IEEE 802.16a. Some digital cordless telephones operate in this band too. 802.16e standards use a part of the frequency range of S band; under WiMAX standards most vendors are now manufacturing equipment in the range of 3.5 GHz.

What freq is microwave?

1. Introduction

Electromagnetic wave spectrum Frequency band Wavelength
Radio waves Very high frequency (VHF) (30–300 MHz) 10–1 m
Microwaves Ultrahigh frequency (UHF) (300–3000 MHz) (100–10 cm)
P band (230 MHz–1 GHz) 130–30 cm
L band (1–2 GHz) 30–15 cm

What is microwave spectrum bands?

Microwave Frequency Bands. Microwave signals are often divided into three categories: ultra high frequency (UHF) (0.3-3 GHz); super high frequency (SHF) (3-30 GHz); and. extremely high frequency (EHF) (30-300 GHz).

Which type of light has the highest frequencies?

Gamma rays
Gamma rays have the highest energies, the shortest wavelengths, and the highest frequencies.

Why do microwaves use 2 45 GHz?

The frequency at which microwave ovens operate is about 2.45 GHz, which is about the resonant frequency of the free water molecule. Higher frequencies would penetrate less well and cook less evenly. Lower frequencies would penetrate better, but would be absorbed so weakly that they wouldn’t cook well.

What is the difference between C-band and L-band?

Traditionally, fiber providers used the C-band, which runs from approximately 1530nm to 1565nm. L-band, or long band, is a wavelength band immediately adjacent to the C-band that has been used for a decade to expand capacity of terrestrial networks. It is now being evaluated for use by submarine network providers.

What are the names of the microwave frequency bands?

Microwave frequency bands Designation Frequency range L band 1 to 2 GHz S band 2 to 4 GHz C band 4 to 8 GHz X band 8 to 12 GHz Ku band 12 to 18 GHz K band 18 to 26.5 GHz Ka band 26.5 to 40 GHz Q band 30 to 50 GHz U band 40 to 60 GHz V band 50 to 75 GHz E band 60 to 90 GHz W band 75 to 110 GHz F band 90 to 140 GHz D band 110 to 170 GHz

What are the specific frequencies of microwave radiation?

Specific frequencies are designated for industrial, scientific, and medical uses. Microwave (MW) radiation is typically considered a subset of RF radiation, with frequencies from 300 megahertz (MHz) to 300 GHz. The table below shows the bands of RF and sub-RF fields.

Where can I find the US radio frequency allocation chart?

A printed version of the most recent version of the United States Frequency Allocations: The Radio Spectrum Chart (published in January 2016 from data as of September 2015) is available from the U. S. Government Publishing Office at a cost of $6.00 per copy.
