Principles of homogenization of thermal processing in microwave fixation are described along with a corresponding modeling-based optimization procedure. An innovative microwave fixation system is computationally analyzed. Two geometric parameters as well as complex permittivity of a dielectric insert are identified as design variables of the optimization problem. Performing an illustrative optimization, the procedure outputs the parameters of the system with the relative standard deviation (served as a uniformity metric) of dissipated power reduced by 5 times.
