Who invented the Microwave and what year was it invented?

Who invented the microwave? Huh? That's like asking who invented water or sunshine. Microwaves are radio waves with wavelengths that range from about one meter to as short as one millimeter, with frequencies between from 300 MHz to 300 GHz. If you're asking who invented the microwave oven, it was Dr Perry Spencer, after accidentally discovering that microwaves can heat food. In 1945 he was an engineer working for Raytheon, working on a radar set that used high power microwaves, and noticed the Mr Goodbar in his pocket started to melt. The first food to be purposely cooked by microwaves was popcorn, and later on an egg, which exploded in the face of someone helping him. He later fed microwaves from a magnetron into into a metal box and saw that it heated food rapidly. Raytheon filed a patent for the microwave cooking process on October 8, 1945.
