Skeletal muscle contraction is triggered by a rise in calcium concentration in the myofibrillar space. The objective of this study was to develop a voltage dependent compartment model of calcium dynamics in frog skeletal muscle fibers.

Scaling up efficient reactions in microwave-assisted chemistry to the level of industrial technology is slowed down by natural difficulties in development of large-scale and highly productive reactors.

In the recently introduced method of production of graphene from graphite powder in a mixture of nitric and sulfuric acids under microwave irradiation, the problem of control over reaction temperature (and thus over the quality of graphene sheets) remains unresolved.

Microwave-enabled exfoliation of graphite oxides has been recently shown to be capable of quickly producing graphene sheets of larger size and with fewer defects with the potential for low-cost mass production.
This paper aims to introduce and illustrate a computational technique capable of determining the geometry and complex permittivity of a supplementary dielectric insert making distributions of microwave-induced dissipated power within the processed material as uniform as possible.
