Ovens and Percy Spencer
The microwave oven was invented
by Percy L. Spencer.
Percy Spencer, while working for
the Raytheon Company, discovered a more efficient way to manufacture magnetrons.
The microwave oven was a by-product
of another technology. It was during a radar-related research project around
1946 that Dr. Percy Spencer, an engineer with the Raytheon Corporation,
noticed something very unusual.
Hall invented the magnetron that
operates most microwave ovens, today.
