A seven-element array of dielectric-loaded open-ended waveguides totally immersed in a water tank is tested as a possible hyperthermia applicator. Experimental results show a substantial increase in focusing ability of the array if a conjugate matching scheme is used to adjust the phase of each element excitation. This scheme could offer a practical procedure for operating a focused hyperthermia applicator in a living patient.
