Abstract
High-power pulsed microwave radiation, when applied to solutions containing dissolved carbon dioxide (or bicarbonate), hydrogen peroxide, and the solu ble organic semi-conductor diazoluminomelanin, generates sound, pulsed lumi nescence, and electrical discharge. Microbes exposed to these phenomena exp erienced damage comparable to short-time, high-temperature insults, even th ough the average and measurable localized temperatures were insufficient to cause the observed effects.
