Suspensions of luminous bacteria were used to investigate the response of this biological system to microwave exposures in the stated frequency range at power levels up to 16.7 w. The merits of the biological system for this work are presented. The experimental arrangement, method of exposure and results are presented. Nonthermal effects in the test organism are found not to occur under the conditions of the investigation. The significance of this finding with respect to man is discussed.
