Abstract

This paper analyses numerically the electric field distribution of a liquid contained in a Petri dish when exposed to electromagnetic waves excited in a rectangular waveguide. Solutions exhibit high-gradients due to the presence of the dielectric liquid contained in the dish. Furthermore, electromagnetic fields within the dielectric have a dramatically lower value than on the remaining part of the domain, which difficults its simulation. Additionally, various singularities of different intensity appear along the boundary of the Petri dish. To properly reproduce and numerically study those effects, we employ a highly-accurate hp-adaptive finite element method. Results of this study demonstrate that the electric field generated within the circular Petri dish is non-homogeneous, and thus, a better shape, size, or location of the dish is needed to achieve an equally distributed radiation enabling the uniform growth of cell cultives.
