Abstract. In this paper we consider the properties of slow (surface) waves, which
are mostly determined by the frequency of electromagnetic waves, the
configuration and design of slow-wave structures, as well as by the type of the
excited wave. The slowing down as well as the operating frequency determine the
energy distribution of the electric and magnetic fields inside the object or on
its surface. These properties allow using slow-waves for measurements and
control of manufacturing processes, for thermal treatment of a variety of
materials and products that generate cold and hot plasma, as well as for
medical purposes (RF and Microwave physical therapy, sterilization of medical
waste, coagulation, diagnostics).
