Title

Measurement of the Molecular Dipole Moment using Active Microwave Thermography (AMT)

Abstract

A method for implementing Active Microwave Thermography (AMT) for use in determining molecular dipole moments is reported. Specifically, the experimental setup along with a mathematical model for determining the dipole moment for deionized water is reported herein. The thermal and spatial resolution of the camera is shown to be of utmost importance in providing statistical and regional relevance, respectfully, of the properties of the material being studied. Deionized water in particular was studied in order to provide foundational knowledge for the veracity of using AMT in determining dipole moment values and representative values are reported herein. In order to extend the technique to more localized regions and composite systems, a more complex model and upgraded hardware are required.
